This is national women’s health week, a perfect transition from Mother’s Day to bring about a strong awareness for women’s health and well-being. Often taking roles as caregivers, it is important to take time out to learn as much as we can about our bodies and health. The Life Center at the Lycoming Mall is always there giving out information and resources. Just ask, and the many heart-giving volunteers will seek out the answers for you. Monthly programs are also full of free advice and health tips on many topics. This past week I was able to participate in an osteoporosis workshop and free posture and bone density screenings. Bonnie Dodge, a physical therapist with Susquehanna Health gave tips and advice on calcium rich foods and bone strengthening exercises. Plus all attendees were given a free pedometer. The class was full and I was able to meet some new people.
