The New Mexico Bone Club is supported by the Osteoporosis Foundation of New Mexico, a not-for-profit 501(c)3 corporation, with a mission to promote bone health, osteoporosis education and research in New Mexico. The New Mexico Bone Club has held over 50 scientific presentations since 1997 devoted to clinical aspects of osteoporosis and metabolic bone disease.
The Santa Fe Bone Symposium is an annual forum devoted to advances in the science and economics of osteoporosis, metabolic bone disease, and assessment of skeletal health. Presented by the Osteoporosis Foundation of New Mexico (OFNM), this meeting is for healthcare providers, scientists, and researchers with a special interest in bone disease, and for bone densitometry technologists who seek a high level of knowledge in their field. Close interaction and collaboration between faculty and participants is an integral part of the Santa Fe Bone Symposium.
The Santa Fe Fellows Workshop on Osteoporosis and Other Metabolic Bone Diseases is a two-day interactive educational program for fellows. It will precede the 22nd Annual Santa Fe Bone Symposium under the direction of the Osteoporosis Foundation of New Mexico. Drs. Michael McClung, John Bilezikian, and Michael Lewiecki lead the Fellows’ workshop which covers a broad spectrum of topics, including basic principles of bone metabolism, fracture risk assessment, an update of therapeutic approaches to osteoporosis, new guidelines for evaluation and therapy of primary hyperparathyroidism and hypoparathyroidism, as well as rare skeletal disorders such as hypophosphatasia, hypophosphatemia, and osteogenesis imperfecta. Faculty are internationally recognized in their field. Fellows are encouraged to submit an abstract to be presented at the Workshop. Four fellows will be selected to give oral presentations of their abstracts during the Santa Fe Bone Symposium, August 5-6 at the same venue.
