Washington Community Health Resource Library is proud to offer free Osteoporosis
and Blood Pressure screenings.
This screening involves an ultrasound to detect the risk of osteoporosis
by measuring for the bone mineral density (BMD) through the heel bone.
Please note you will need to remove your shoe and sock (and/or stockings)
from one foot to place your heel in a machine to measure your BMD. The
screening is painless and only takes about 5 minutes per person.
Blood Pressure Screening
A self-service blood pressure screening station is available in the Library.
You can check your systolic and diastolic while also calculating your
height and weight to measure your body mass index (BMI).
Trained volunteers are available:
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday -- 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.; Wednesdays
-- 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
No appointment is necessary
