Osteoporosis Australia is pleased to announce and acknowledge grant funding received from Colonial Foundation in support of the Know Your Bones online self-assessment program.

Greg Lyubomirsky CEO Osteoporosis Australia said “this important grant from Colonial Foundation will help us reach many more Australians with the Know Your Bones prevention message.”

Know Your Bones is an online self-assessment tool introduced to help Australians understand their risk of osteoporosis. The online tool provides a risk assessment and personalised recommendations which can be taken to the doctor and discussed as required.

Andre Carstens, CEO of Colonial Foundation said “the Know Your Bones program is helping raise awareness about osteoporosis and can lead to improved diagnosis for this common chronic disease. Colonial Foundation is proud to be supporting this important initiative that will improve the health of ageing Australians. ”

Colonial Foundation will support the Know your Bones program with a $900,000 grant over the next 3 years.
