MAYO CLINIC HEALTH SYSTEM
OSTEOPOROSIS – WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW?
- Wednesday, August 15
- 11 am – 12 pm
- Eric Busse, MD, Mayo Clinic Health System, Presenter
Osteoporosis causes bones to become weak and brittle — so brittle that a fall or even mild stress such as bending over or coughing can cause a fracture. During this session, Dr. Eric Busse will discuss causes, risk factors and symptoms of osteoporosis. He also will share prevention ideas, including how to strengthen bones through lifestyle choices, physical activity, and nutrition.
