Free video-conference on Osteoporosis: An Update – May 23

You’re invited to a free video-conference to provide the general public with an update on osteoporosis.

 

Our bones are designed to last us a lifetime. They are a product of what we eat, what we do, and heredity. Osteoporosis is a condition that causes our bones to become thin and porous, decreasing bone strength. This increases the risk of breaking a bone (fractures). According to Osteoporosis Canada, one in three women and one in five men will suffer from an osteoporotic fracture during their lifetime. This health education session is for everyone. Come and find out how to maintain an active lifestyle and ensure your bone health!
