Osteoporosis: Build Bone Density and Lower Your Risk


Thursday, January 25, 6:30 p.m.

Osteoporosis, low bone mass and the structural deterioration of bone tissue, can lead to bone fragility and an increased risk of fractures. According to the National Institute of Health Osteoporosis and Related Bone Disease Resource Center, over 40 million people are diagnosed with osteoporosis or are at high risk due to low bone density. Approximately one in two women and one in four men, age fifty and older, will suffer from a fracture related to osteoporosis.
