Osteoporosis Management Program
Fragility fractures have become nearly epidemic in the United States among older adults, with over 2 million fractures each year - more than heart attacks, strokes, and breast cancer combined. Approximately 80% of people do not receive recommended osteoporosis care following a fracture. People with a fragility fracture are at an 86% higher risk of a second fracture.
