What you need to Know about Bone Health
 The nation’s bone health is placing an increasing burden on the quality of life of Americans. In the next few years as baby boomers age, that burden is expected to escalate. 50% of women and 20% of men over 50 will have osteoporosis, but this disease can affect the young and old.  Learn about the important of good diet, exercise and bone health to remain fit and healthy though all stages of life. These programs are presented through the U.S. Bone and Joint Initiative on Tuesdays March 24 and March 31 at 10 am at the downtown Madison Senior Center.
Fit to a T: Learn about how to prevent, detect, and treat osteoporosis from Physical Therapist Ryan DeRose.
