May is National Osteoporosis Month! We hope you will join us in celebrating bone health. In honor of our 35th Anniversary, we have created free downloadable resources including a poster and an interactive tool, 35 Ways to Stay Bone Strong. Each box links to a fact, resource or action vetted by the leading authority on bone health, National Osteoporosis Foundation, to empower you to protect your ability to live your best life.
Osteoporosis is common. One in two women and up to one in four men over the age of fifty will break a bone due to osteoporosis. The disease, which is not a normal part of aging, is serious causing broken bones, pain, suffering and life-altering loss of mobility—yet it is treatable and even preventable.
Help us promote National Osteoporosis Month and the importance staying bone strong by sharing these free downloadable resources and information on our website NOF.org.
