OSWEGO – Nurses from the St. Luke Family of Caring are teaming up with the Oswego YMCA to offer the community bone density screenings on March 13 from 9:30 to 11 a.m., at the Oswego YMCA, 265 W. First St.
The screening is free of charge and open to both YMCA members and to the general public alike.
“This is a great opportunity 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 to complete.”
Nurses will be available to discuss the screening results.
As a member of the Oswego County Falls Prevention Coalition, nurses 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 thank St. Luke for our continued partnership with 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.”
