SPH targets osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a debilitating disease affecting more than half of women aged 50 and older. The good news is it can be treated and even prevented. In recognition of National Osteoporosis Education and Awareness Month, during May, South Peninsula Hospital is offering a $100 discount on bone density scans. This 30-minute test identifies people who have or are at risk for developing osteoporosis. For information or to schedule a scan, call 235-0362.
