Charles Cole Memorial Hospital will offer heel screenings from 1 to 3 p.m., May 20 at the Women’s Health Center in hospital’s Irwin Medical Arts Center. The cost is $10. Call 274-8200 for an appointment.


Heel screenings give patients a preliminary bone density score (T score) in a matter of minutes. Low scores typically call for a more thorough exam. Those who should receive a heel screening include women over 65 or who have had an early menopause or hysterectomy or other hormonal depletion, men over 70, men and women taking certain medications or certain cancer treatments, those with risk factors or a disease or condition that can cause bone loss, and men and women who eat a low calcium diet or have had significant height loss.
