Register for an Aging in Motion Webinar on Sarcopenia Cut-Points
Date: June 09, 2016
Sarcopenia as a specific condition was initially identified in 1989. Originally it referred to the loss of muscle mass that occurs with age and was seen as a characteristic state almost universal with aging. Over time clinical perspectives on sarcopenia have evolved and sarcopenia has now come to be defined as a clinically significant disorder based on distinct findings and functional issues. There is wide conceptual agreement on the base definition of sarcopenia but variations still exist with specific cut-points, which are thresholds chosen to distinguish those who have a disease or condition based on ranges of biological measurements. Join this 1-hour webinar to hear from leaders of national and international efforts to reach agreement on appropriate cut-points for the condition.
This webinar will take place on Monday, June 13 at 10:00am Eastern. Register today!
