World Osteoporosis Day takes place every year on October 20, launching a year-long campaign dedicated to raising global awareness of the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis and metabolic bone disease. Organized by the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) every year, World Osteoporosis Day involves campaigns by national osteoporosis patient societies from around the world with activities in over 90 countries. For more information visit the World Osteoporosis Day website.
This year’s Love Your Bones – Protect Your Future Campaign encourages everyone to take early action against osteoporosis through regular exercise, a bone-healthy diet, avoiding negative lifestyle habits & consulting your doctor about risks. Wear white on October 20 and embrace bone health!
