Women's Health and Bone Disease

Women's Health and Bone Disease

Women today have more equality than ever before, but unfortunately, the earth's 3.5 billion women are not equal when it comes to their health or the healthcare they receive. Osteoporosis is the most common type of bone disease.1 Over 200 million people suffer from osteoporosis worldwide,2 and 80% are women.3 More than 8.9 million global fractures annually (approximately 1,000 fractures per hour) can be attributed to osteoporosis.4 In this webinar, we will examine women's health as it relates to common forms of bone disease, including key testing relative to diagnosis, risk assessment, and prevention.
