Osteoporosis, or significant bone loss, affects some 28 million Americans and contributes to an estimated 1.5 million bone fractures every year. The condition, which affects half of all women older than 65, and one in five men, is the topic of a seminar sponsored by the ONS Foundation for Clinical Research and Education.
The seminar, Osteoporosis: Prevention, Treatment and Management features orthopedist Steven Hindman, MD, Endocrinologist Judith Goldberg Berman, MD and Physical Therapist Betsy Kreuter, PT, and will take place Tuesday, November 2 at 6:30 p.m. at the ONS Center, 6 Greenwich Office Park on Valley Drive.
Participants will learn about bone anatomy, personal risk factors and the latest treatments for osteoporosis. They will also see demonstrations of exercises to help prevent fractures and find out other measures to promote strong bones. The program is free. Registration is requested. To register, call (203) 869-3131 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
