Nurses from the St. Luke Family of Caring are teaming up with the Oswego YMCA to offer the community bone density screenings on Wednesday, March 21 from 9:30am to 11:00am, at the Oswego YMCA, 265 West First Street.
The screening is free of charge to YMCA members and the public are welcome. “The bone density screening is easy to do and will take only a few minutes to complete,” said St. Luke Health Services Nurse Anna Waite. “Screenings can help identify people who may be at risk for osteoporosis and are likely to benefit from further bone density testing.” Nurses will be available to discuss the screening results, share information on how to maintain healthy bones, and answer health-related questions.

“We thank St. Luke for our continued partnership providing these free screenings to our community. The information you receive from the screening may help you to improve your health, especially those who may be experiencing the onset of osteoporosis, or who may be experiencing issues with their balance,” said Kerrie Ann Webb, Executive Director at the Oswego YMCA. “Representatives from the YMCA will also be available to discuss the many ways we can help you enhance your quality of life through exercise and other activities or programs we offer.”
