    Watch Your Mailbox for the New Primer!

    Date: August 21, 2013

    One of the top benefits you receive as an ASBMR member is the Primer on the Metabolic Bone Diseases and Disorders of Mineral Metabolism. Watch your mailbox in the next few weeks for your complimentary copy of the new eighth edition. Fully revised by the world’s foremost clinicians and researchers in the bone field, this comprehensive reference book offers more value than ever, according to Editor-in-Chief Cliff Rosen.

    “We are really proud of the new book,” Rosen said. “The content has substantially increased with the addition of new chapters and a brand-new section on the skeleton and its integration with other tissues. This edition is updated with the latest advances in basic bone biology and clinical osteoporosis and covers the widest possible spectrum of metabolic bone diseases and disorders of mineral metabolism. Its attractive new design also makes it easier to read and find information.” 

    ASBMR members receive one print copy, online access and 25 percent off of any additional copies of the Primer they may wish to purchase. Members will be notified in the ASBMR e-News Weekly when they can access the Primer online. Nonmembers and organizations may order the Primer directly from John Wiley & Sons.

    Additionally, a companion website hosting supplemental resources has been created. The website includes the figures from the new edition, which are available for download as PowerPoint slides to help facilitate teaching, as well as links to additional resources.
