Stand Tall:  An Update on Bone Health

Osteoporosis is one of the most common medical conditions in older adult populations. With an annual cost of close to $20 billion, it is also one of the most devastating conditions. Up to 50% may lose their independence following a hip fracture. The good news is that these fractures can be prevented. Join Dr. Greenspan as she reviews the current understanding of osteoporosis. Learn how it’s screened for, who’s at risk and some easy ways to prevent the progression of bone loss and fractures.
