+ Osteoporosis Awareness Prevention Month: Beebe to host screenings in Cape Region Nearly 44 million Americans are at risk of developing oSteo- porosis, often called "the silent disease" because it occurs without symptoms. Osteoporosis is a seri- ous health concern that affects bone mass and increases the chance for fractures. To raise awareness and prevention for women and men throughout Sus- sex County, internist Dr. Uday Jani, Beebe Medical Center staff member, will host three free Fo- cus on Health seminars and ,stee- per,sis screenings throughout May. The 2003 theme of *steeper,- sis Awareness and Prevention Month, sponsored by the National *steeper, sis Foundation, is Are You Losing Height? Height loss of an inch or more may be due to vertebral fractures caused by ,s- teeper,sis that women and men may be unaware they have even sustained. Beebe's free Focus on Health series will feature quantitative ul- trasound screenings with JaM, who is also a certified clinical densitometrist. He will measure bone density for signs of ,stee- per,sis and provide informational discussions about prevention and risks for developing ,steeper,sis. For more information and to pre- register, call 645-3337. The lectures and screenings are as follows: 6 to 8 p.m., Wednes- day, May 7, at the Millville Fire Hall; 6 to 8 p.m., Thursday, May 8, at the Beebe Long Neck Health Center; and 5:45 - 7:45 p.m., Thursday, May 22, at the Re- hoboth Beach Library.

"About 70 percent of children will contract RSV by age 1," said Dr. Michael Speer, pediatrician at Texas Children's Hospital and professor of pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine. While the virus may be espe- cially dangerous to premature and multiple-birth babies, it usually amounts to little more than a cold for most healthy children, Speer said. '1"o reduce the risk of exposing infants to the virus, wash hands often, stay away if you have a cold or fever, limit exposure to children with cold symptoms, avoid crowded areas and refrain from smoking around babies or "'Lreat.. to infants children."
