Advances in Detecting and Treating Osteoporosis
Free Health Lecture

arthritislectureOsteoporosis—a bone-weakening disease—is a major health threat for millions of Americans. In fact, half of all women and a quarter of men over age 50 will suffer a bone fracture because of osteoporosis. These fractures can be devastating and lead to chronic pain, loss of independence and, in some cases, death. Fortunately, early signs of osteoporosis can be detected quickly and painlessly and effective treatments are available.

Recognizing and Treating Heart Failure

heartfailureNearly 6 million Americans suffer from heart failure, a serious condition that occurs when your heart can’t pump enough blood to the rest of your body. Yet many people are unaware they have this potentially fatal condition because some of the most common symptoms—such as shortness of breath and fatigue—are often mistaken for normal signs of aging.

Our speaker is Dr. Scott Blois, who is a board certified expert in diagnosing and treating heart failure. He will describe the signs of heart failure and provide an update on the latest treatment options.

When: Wednesday, June 15, from 7 to 8 p.m.
