Send a link to a friend

[SEPT. 9, 2004]  Logan County Health Department is proud to present an osteoporosis screening clinic to all Logan County residents. The clinic will begin Sept. 28 and will run from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. the fourth Tuesday of each month at 109 Third St.

Today, 25 million Americans have the bone-thinning disease called osteoporosis. Because of their weakened bones, these Americans' bones are more susceptible to breaks, cracks and fractures. The causes of osteoporosis can be numerous, such as a lack of calcium, a family history of osteoporosis, small bone structure, a history of smoking or drinking alcohol, and an inactive lifestyle, as well as being over age 50.

Screenings are easy, completely pain-free and will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. There will be a nominal fee of $5 per screening.

Please call (217) 735-2317 to schedule your appointment.
