The screening is free of charge and open to YMCA members and the public alike.

“This is a great opportunity for folks to receive a valuable health screening,” said St. Luke Health Services nurse Anna Waite. “The bone density screening is easy to do and will take only a few minutes.”

Nurses will be available to discuss the screening results.

As a member of the Oswego County Falls Prevention Coalition, professionals from St. Luke will be on hand to share information about falls prevention strategies and answer any questions about ways to reduce the risk of falls in your home.

“We are glad to partner with St. Luke; the information provided by this screening may help you to improve your health, especially for those who may be experiencing the onset of osteoporosis, or who may be experiencing issues with their balance and falls” said Kerrie Ann Webb, executive director at the Oswego YMCA. “Representatives of the YMCA will be on hand to discuss our many programs and services that may help you enhance your quality of life through exercise and other activities or programs we offer. We are glad to partner with St. Luke and make this screening available to our members and the Oswego community.”
