Osteoporosis, or significant bone loss, affects 28 million Americans and contributes to an estimated 1.5 million bone fractures every year. The condition, which affects half of all women older than 65, and one in five men, is the topic of a talk by Orthopedist Steven Hindman, MD, Endocrinologist Judith Goldberg Berman, MD and Physical Therapist Betsy Kreuter, PT tonight at 7 p.m. at Greenwich Hospital, Noble Conference Center.
Seminar participants will learn about bone anatomy, personal risk factors and the latest treatments for osteoporosis.
They will also see demonstrations of exercises that help prevent fractures and hear about other measures that may help promote strong bones. The program is free and open to the public. Registration is requested. To register, call Greenwich Hospital at 203-863-3627 or 888-357-2409.
