This Saturday!
Help Spread the Word on World Osteoporosis Day, October 20th!

The World Osteoporosis Day (WOD) 2018 campaign calls for global action to improve bone health and prevent fractures due to osteoporosis, including vertebral (spine) fractures which often remain undiagnosed and untreated. This Saturday, October 20th, we want to share the message that secondary fractures are preventable, emphasizing the new Clinical Recommendations that were released at ASBMR’s Annual Meeting.  We have created a social media toolkit for our members to copy and paste ready-made tweets and posts to build awareness around secondary fracture prevention. We also encourage you to use the hashtag #No2ndFracture with tweets and posts of your own! In addition, you can join the conversation and build awareness by following the hashtags #worldosteoporosisday and #loveyourbones on your favorite social media accounts. For more information, visit the World Osteoporosis Day website.

Now Accepting Applications for the USBJI Young Investigator Initiative Grant Mentoring and Career Development Program!

The USBJI Young Investigator Initiative is a grant mentoring program providing early-career investigators an opportunity to work with experienced researchers in our field to assist them in securing funding and other survival skills required for pursuing an academic career. Participants rate highly the one-on-one mentoring with experienced researchers, the opportunity for inter-disciplinary and peer-to-peer exchange, and collaborations established during workshops. The unique aspect of this program is the opportunity for attendees to maintain a relationship with a mentor until their application is funded. The Spring 2019 workshop will take place on April 26-28, 2019, in Rosemont, Illinois, USA (Chicago).
