Bridgton Hospital will have the Central Maine Medical Center Mobile Osteoporosis Van parked at Norway Savings Bank, Bridgton, Wednesday, May 30, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for free bone density screenings for osteoporosis.

The screening is on a first come/first served basis and is intended for those ages 40-plus who have not had a screening within the past two years.

Osteoporosis is a silent disease that causes bones to thin, weaken and fracture, without warning, especially in the hip, spine and wrists. However, there are steps you can take to keep your bones strong throughout your entire life and, in fact, steps you can take to prevent the disease. The first step is to have this simple and painless test.

For further information contact Pam Smith at Bridgton Hospital, 647-6055.
