What is osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a common bone disease that causes bones to become weak and brittle. The disease causes the density of affected bones to be severely decreased, which can lead to increased risk of fracture or breakage.

Both men and women are encouraged to attend, as this condition affects all.

25% of men aged over 50 have osteoporosis. More men die from osteoporosis than prostate cancer and more men pass away after breaking their hip than women. Men are severely under diagnosed. Please come along and be informed!
