World Osteoporosis Day
20 Oct 2017
Today marks World Osteoporosis Day – a day of activity dedicated to raising awareness of the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis around the world.
Here at the National Osteoporosis Society, we’ve been busy through our A Message to My Younger Self campaign spreading the word and encouraging people to start important conversations about bone health.
We’ve received hundreds of messages for our wonderful supporters, all offering crucial advice about the importance role a balanced diet and an active lifestyle play in building strong bones.
If you’ve not already sent in your own message to your younger self, it’s not too late to take part. You can share your message by visiting our A Message to My Younger Self webpages.
Our Facebook and Twitter pages have also been buzzing with activity as we work to make sure as many people as possible are aware of the wide ranging physical, personal and social issues created by osteoporosis.
Our fantastic supporters will also be busy out and about today, spreading the word. Tonight in Portsmouth our local support group will be lighting up the iconic Spinnaker Tower in bright orange to mark the special day. The team from the osteoporosis unit at Llandudno General Hospital will be doing the same at Conwy castle.
