We discuss the evaluation, prevention and treatment of osteoporosis. Subjects covered include diet, exercise, vitamins, calcium, medications, "complementary" and "integrative" medicine. Educational information will be presented by experts, and tips will be shared by those who have personal experience with osteoporosis. You will hear how others have learned to cope with disability and pain from osteoporotic fractures. You will have the opportunity to contribute your own ideas and ask all the questions you always wanted to ask, in a friendly informal setting.
