Public osteoporosis forum coming up

  • Print

A broken bone may be the only warning sigh of osteoporosis, say organizers of an upcoming public event.  

The St. Vital-based Manitoba Chapter of Osteoporosis Canada will hold a free public awareness forum, titled Breaking News on Broken Bones, on Tues., Sept. 24 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Rady JCC’s Berney Theatre, located at 123 Doncaster St. in Tuxedo.

Dr. Heather Frame, a family physician and member of Osteoporosis Canada’s national board of directors, will be the guest speaker at the event.    

According to MCOC’s website, osteoporosis is a disease characterized by low bone mass and deterioration of bone tissues, which leads to increased bone fragility and risk of fractures. The spine, hips, wrists and shoulders are particularly susceptible.

Registration for the upcoming event is required. To sign up, email manitoba@osteoporosis.ca or call 204-772-3498.
