Free Bone Density Screenings To Be Offered In Washington Township

Free bone density screenings will be held by given by Washington Township Recreation Department Oct. 20 in the Township Senior Center.
A bone density test detects osteoporosis– a disease that causes bones to become more fragile and more likely to break. In the past, osteoporosis could be detected only after breaking a bone.
The bone density screening will begin with a short discussion by staff members from the Village Family Clinic on how important it is to have healthy bones. There will be an individualized five-minute screening for each person. All it takes is to place one’s foot on a surface and screening results will automatically be printed out.  
Call the Recreation Department by Oct. 16 at 908-876-5941, or email to register.
