Think only women are at risk of osteoporosis? Think again. At least one in five men will break a bone from osteoporosis, and one quarter of the 30,000 hip fractures caused by osteoporosis are in men. Watch this video to learn more. Share it with someone you care about and encourage them to get assessed for osteoporosis. Because osteoporosis is a man’s disease, too.
The month of November is Osteoporosis Awareness Month and Osteoporosis Canada wants to work to focus public attention upon the importance of building strong bones for life through awareness and education.
Osteoporosis Awareness Month is a time we can come together to make bone health and osteoporosis a priority in the lives of all Canadians. Join us this November and get involved as we promote the importance of building strong bones for life.
Help spread awareness by posting the link www.osteoporosis.ca and see below for ways to get involved.
