Experts gather to set new agenda
The Medical and Scientific Advisory Committee of Osteoporosis Australia gathered in Sydney on August 7 to review issues and recent research relating to bone health. The meeting was led by Dr Greg Lyubomirsky, CEO, and Professor Peter Ebeling AO, Medical Director. The committee developed a road map to reduce the burden of fracture in Australia due to osteoporosis. New national programs were flagged, targeting general practitioners and patients to minimise the current gap in prevention of osteoporosis and management of fractures.
Osteoporosis Australia will be announcing new intiatives in the coming months.
