It is vital to build strong bones during childhood in order to reduce the risk of getting osteoporosis as an adult. But how can we best reach young people to encourage them to change their habits and life styles? IOF’s member societies and partners have created imaginative education programs, and we encourage you to look at their activities and contact them for more information.
For more information about the role of nutrition, exercise and heredity, please look at the new IOF publication Invest in Your Bones (PDF 534 KB), written by Jean Philippe Bonjour.
