Max Cornell of Jermyn, along with other student leaders at Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine (GCSOM), has planned and organized a free osteoporosis screening hosted in partnership with the Geisinger Musculoskeletal Institute. The screening is Saturday, April 13, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Geisinger Musculoskeletal and Sports Medicine Clinic, 3 W. Olive St. in Scranton.
Attendees will learn about osteoporosis and receive a free screening using quantitative ultrasonography — one of the latest and safest screening methods, according to GCSOM officials. Representatives from Geisinger rheumatology, nutrition, primary care and both occupational and physical therapy will be on site to discuss osteoporosis risk and prevention, screening results and how to follow up with proper care. No registration is required. If you have questions, call 570-961-3823, option 4.
