|The UC Bone Health and Osteoporosis Center will host "Bone Day” Friday, May 6, at the UC Metabolic Diseases Institute.
Osteoporosis continues to be a major public health problem, with an enormous cost. The field has witnessed an explosion of new knowledge, which must be integrated into the understanding of the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and management of osteoporosis.
The purpose of this one-day program is to provide a discussion of advances in the understanding of the diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis. The course features state-of-the-art presentations by internationally recognized leaders in the field and panel discussions to provide interaction between the speakers and the participants.
The target audience is internists, family physicians, endocrinologist, rheumatologists, gynecologists, orthopedists and residents in training involved in the care and treatment of patients with metabolic bone disease. Basic scientists interested in bone biology are also welcome.
