Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by low bone mass and deterioration of bone tissue, which leads to increased bone fragility and risk of fracture (broken bones). It is often known as “the silent thief” because bone loss often occurs without symptoms.
In this online webinar, Dr. Beth Donaldson, Family Physician and Medical Director at Copeman Healthcare, will explain the importance of a healthy bone routine and what you can do to help manage symptoms of osteoporosis throughout your life. Registered Dietitian, Christine Shaddick, will also outline the link between nutrition and bone health.
In this online webinar, you’ll learn:
- How healthy bones operate
- How bones age with time
- How bone loss can be sped up by osteoporosis
- Treatment options for men and women of all ages
- …and more!
