Bone density workshop and screening coming to Manchester library March 24

The Manchester library, 21 Colonial Drive, will present “Osteoporosis 101,” a workshop about the bone disease, 2 p.m. Tuesday March 24.

For people who are interested an optional, complimentary bone density screening will be held after the workshop.

Barbara Greenberg-Schwartz, a pharmacist from the Center for Healthy Aging at Monmouth Medical Center’s Southern Campus will discuss the signs, symptoms and risk factors of osteoporosis as well as medications used to treat the disease.

Since both men and women can potentially be affected by osteoporosis, both are encouraged to attend the workshop.

The program is part of the library’s “Chapters of Health” series and is open to the adult public, free of charge. Register online at www.theoceancountylibrary.org or telephone 732-657-7600.
