About This Event

One in two women, and one in five men over the age of 65, will suffer at least one bone fracture due to osteoporosis—a disease characterized by increasing bone loss.

Although peak bone mass is reached around age 30, it is never too late to promote good bone health. Doing so helps improve quality of life as we age. This free session will review the key nutrients for bone health, like calcium and vitamin D, and how to ensure that you obtain proper amounts. Learn how different lifestyle behaviors affect bone health and discover some valuable exercises that can help prevent bone loss.
