After dinner @ 8:00, Dr. Ken Howayeck speaks on Osteoporosis Awareness: What a Vegetarian Needs to Know About Bone Health (no donation required for this short presentation), and provides Ultrasound Bone Density Screenings ($15). From Google Health, "Osteoporosis is the thinning of bone tissue and loss of bone density over time. There are no symptoms in the early stages of the disease. Symptoms occurring late in the disease include bone pain or tenderness; fractures with little or no trauma, loss of height (as much as 6 inches) over time, low back pain due to fractures of the spinal bones, neck pain due to fractures of the spinal bones, and stooped posture or kyphosis, also called a 'dowager's hump.' " Osteoporosis can occur in both women and men.
The ultrasound screenings are done on the heel of the foot, are completely safe (no x-rays), take just three minutes, and include an on-the-spot written report, for a special price of $15. The screenings will help people become aware of any fracture risks, hopefully in time to do something about them.
Dr. Howayeck is a certified speaker for the Foundation for Osteoporosis Research and Education (http://fore.org);... the founder and director of Five Star On-Site Testing, which provides bone density screening services; and a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) who practiced for many years in Hawaii, where he also instructed surgeons and medical students in Foot and Ankle Surgery as an Assistant Professor of Surgery at the University of Hawaii School of Medicine, and was past president of the Hawaii Podiatric Medical Association.
