The primary focus of funds from the 2021 Symposium will be used to replace the Horizon DXA Bone Scan X-Ray Machine at our hospital. The current machine has reached its end-of-life and the updated scanner will serve over 500 women each year with bone density X-Rays. The cost for replacement is $90,000.
