Osteoporosis — a bone-weakening disease — is a major health threat for millions of Americans. In fact, half of all women and a quarter of men 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, treatments are available to prevent and manage osteoporosis.

Come hear endocrinologist Dr. Lindsey Rentschler with Endocrinology Associates of BCH describe the latest methods for preventing and treating bone loss.
