The Allen County Health Department hosted the Western Kentucky University Institute for Rural Health Development and Research Mobile Health lab last Thursday, and 60 local women took advantage of the opportunity for free bone density screening in hopes of combating of detecting osteoporosis. Allen County Medical Reserve Corps volunteers provided educational materials and served calcium-rich foods. Serving the Barren River Area Development District since 2002, the lab program also provides screenings for blood sugar, cholesterol and more.
