Austin, TX (PRWEB) June 4, 2009 -- Austin, Texas-based HealthYes!™ teamed up with St. David's HealthCare on Sunday, May 17, to promote osteoporosis awareness among young women at the Mommy & Baby Expo 2009 at the Palmer Events Center (900 Barton Springs Rd.) in Austin.

"We feel great about having the opportunity to partner with St. David's HealthCare in donating our osteoporosis screening services to a significant number of women in the Austin community."
