My biggest message today is to encourage women to take charge of their health. Don’t be an observer, be a participant, and don’t procrastinate about ANY of your checkups, including bone density tests.
The International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) is a global movement for change. Through our national societies we are active around the world raising public awareness of bone, muscle and joint health. Initiatives include the organization of World Osteoporosis Day (October 20), the Capture the Fracture campaign, and outreach projects such as snap! the breaking spine.
