Osteoporosis Support Group

We discuss the evaluation, prevention and treatment of osteoporosis. Subjects covered include diet, exercise, vitamins, calcium, medications, "complementary" and "integrative" medicine. Educational information will be presented by experts, and tips will be shared by those who have personal experience with osteoporosis. You will hear how others have learned to cope with disability and pain from osteoporotic fractures. You will have the opportunity to contribute your own ideas and ask all the questions you always wanted to ask, in a friendly informal setting.

Options for Better Bone Health

Brookes McIntyre

Understanding how bones develop and what other problems can affect the process is crucial to being able to have a meaningful conversation with your doctor about treatment options for osteoporosis. Since 1990, American Bone Health has been teaching people how to build and keep strong and healthy bones for life with practical and up-to-date information and resources to inspire them to prevent bone loss, osteoporosis and fractures.
