OAKLAND, CA - 07/07/2017 (PRESS RELEASE JET)
Stay strong, stay independent, take the first step today is the message American Bone Health wants adults to take to improve their bone health. The 5th Annual bone health awareness day called Freedom from Fractures, helps adults develop a road map to improve their bone health and reduce their risk of breaking a bone. Last year, the event identified that more than 50% of the participants were at high risk of having a fracture in the next ten years.
“There are 2 million preventable fractures every year in this country,” says Kathleen Cody, Executive Director, “We want people to know the steps they can take lower their changes of having a life changing fracture.”
Participants learn how to reduce their risk of breaking a bone through an assessment conducted by American Bone Health trained Peer Educators. The validated, web-based FORE Fracture Risk Calculator™ uses clinical factors that generates a graphic result of low, moderate, or high risk. Given the results, the peer educators discuss a road map to better bone health.
