Approximately 150 people attended to find out more about the condition and enjoyed hearing from a wide range of speakers. The session provided an excellent opportunity to learn more about osteoporosis and meet others with the condition. Joan Welling Chair of the support group did a fantastic job in ensuring all our speakers and attendees had a wonderful morning.
