Osteoporosis New Zealand marks World Osteoporosis Day on 20 th October 2016
This month, our friends at Osteoporosis New Zealand (ONZ) are supporting the International
Osteoporosis Foundation’s (IOF) World Osteoporosis Day (WOD) Awareness Campaign. Under its
theme of Love Your Bones: Protect Your Future, WOD 2016 calls upon the general public to take
early action to protect their bone and muscle health, and for health authorities and physicians to
protect their communities’ bone health.
NZAMM members can play a vital role in reducing the burden that osteoporosis, falls and fractures imposes upon
our older people, their friends and family, and our health and social care budgets. Accordingly, we encourage you
all to read more about this exciting Campaign at http://www.osteoporosis.org.nz and implement its
recommendations inyour practice.
