Mark Your Calendars – World Osteoporosis Day is October 20!
Date: October 11, 2017
Mark your calendar! Friday, October 20th is World Osteoporosis Day, a global awareness campaign about the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis and metabolic bone disease. This year’s theme, “Love Your Bones – Protect Your Future,” encourages everyone to take early action against osteoporosis through regular exercise, a bone-healthy diet, avoiding negative lifestyle habits & consulting your health care professional about your risk of the disease. ASBMR will be participating through highlighting the latest scientific research on osteoporosis. We encourage our members to join us by sending in articles or your own thoughts on the importance of continuing osteoporosis research, which we will share on our social media channels. You can also join the conversation and build awareness by wearing white on October 20 and following the hashtags #worldosteoporosisday and #loveyourbones.
