The Foundation for Osteoporosis Education and Research (FORE) offers free bone scans as part of a training program for the densitometer students, and next weekend, (April 30th & May 1st) they have some appointments available. Available appointment slots are below.

Why bone density tests are  important:

  • Osteoporosis and low bone mass are currently estimated to be a major public health threat for almost 44 million U.S. women and men aged 50 and older
  • The 44 million people with either osteoporosis or low bone mass represent 55 percent of the people aged 50 and older in the United States
  • Osteoporosis affects more women than breast cancer, uterine cancer, and colon cancer combined
