Strong Bones, Strong Life FREE Introductory Lecture (Online)

With bone density peaking at 35 years old, we all experience progressive bone loss at a rate of about 1% per year as we age. With 43% of adults over the age of 65 either Osteopenic or Osteoporotic, about one-third of these individuals will experience an Osteoporosis-related fracture in their lifetimes. However, this progressive weakening of bone can be either accelerated, or decelerated, through our lifestyle choices, by how we eat and by how we choose to move and exercise.

Join Strong Bones, Strong Life instructor Dr. Katie Wadland, PT, DPT, Board-Certified Geriatric Clinical Specialist, for a Strong Bones, Strong Life Free workshop. Discover the tools you need to better understand what you can do to maintain your bone density, slow bone loss and prevent osteoporosis-related fractures through lifestyle change, by making the best nutritional choices and through the right exercise and activity.

This workshop provides a sneak peak of the 8-week series, Strong Bones, Strong Life, that starts online on Monday, November 15.
