FULTON – Nurses from the St. Luke Family of Caring are teaming up with the Fulton Family YMCA to offer the community bone density screenings on March 25 from 9:30 to 11 a.m. at the YMCA, 715 W. Broadway.
The screenings are free of charge and open to YMCA members and the public alike.
“This is a great opportunity for folks to receive valuable health screenings including bone density and a falls risk evaluation; both easy to do and will take only a few minutes,” said St. Luke Home Care Coordinator Ashley Laskevicz, LPN, part of the screening team.
Nurses will be available to discuss the screening results.
As a member of the Oswego County Falls Prevention Coalition, information about falls prevention strategies will be available and nurse will answer any questions about ways to reduce the risk of falls in your home.
“The information provided by the free screenings may help you to improve your health especially for those who may be experiencing the onset of osteoporosis or who may be having trouble with their balance or falls,” said Brea Goss, director of health and wellness at the YMCA.
“Representatives from our YMCA will be available to discuss the many programs and services we offer that can help enhance your quality of life through exercise or other activities,” added Goss. “We are glad to partner with St. Luke and make these screenings available to our members and to the greater-Fulton community.”
