Osteoporosis is a disease which refers to bones that have become weaker and can lead to fractures, particularly in later years. On this program, Dr. Neil Binkley, a founder of the UW Osteoporosis Clinical Center and the Osteoporosis Clinical Research Program highlights what we know about osteoporosis, and what we can do to prevent and treat it. Did you know that approximately 70% of a person's peak bone mass is due to inheritance?
Osteoporosis prevention begins in our youth which makes this an important program for all ages.
