Osteoporosis Support Group
We discuss the evaluation, prevention, and treatment of osteoporosis. Subjects covered include diet, exercise, vitamins, calcium, medications, “complementary” and “integrative” medicine. Educational information will be presented by experts, and tips will be shared by those who have personal experience with osteoporosis. You will hear how others have learned to cope with disability and pain from osteoporotic fractures. You will have the opportunity to contribute your own ideas and ask all the questions you always wanted to ask, in a friendly informal setting.
These meetings are open to the public. It is a great opportunity to talk to osteoporosis experts for as long as you want.
There is limited space, so please visit www.ofnm.org to see the schedule and register online or you can sign up by calling 505-275-8731.
Consider attending if:
You have osteoporosis, you have a loved one with osteoporosis, or
you are interested in learning more about osteoporosis.
We are deeply committed to educating healthcare providers and the public on issues relating to osteoporosis and bone metabolism. Our physicians are board certified in internal medicine, certified in bone densitometry by the International Society for Clinical Densitometry, and on the clinical faculty at University of New Mexico School of Medicine. They are clinicians with
a consultative practice in osteoporosis, researchers investigating new treatments for osteoporosis, and educators with an interest in a variety of osteoporosis-related topics. They have lectured on osteoporosis and taught bone densitometry courses throughout the US. Our trained bone densitometry technologists and staff members are also skilled osteoporosis educators.
