Czech societies unite to celebrate WOD 2005

To celebrate WOD 2005, four differnt WOD activities were held by the Czech National Osteoporosis Forum (CNOF), an umbrella organisation uniting both IOF members, the Czech Society for Metabolic Skeletal Diseases and the Czech Osteoporosis League.

First a press conference was held on October 14 about awareness and possibilities of osteoporosis prevention with accent to physical activity, with 24 journalists present. Short lectures were presented Dr Milan Cabrnoch, MEP, member of European Parliament´s Osteoporosis Interest Group; Dr Milan Bayer, scientific secretary of Czech Society for Metabolic Skeletal Diseases; Dr Aleš Skøivánek, member of Committee of Czech Society for Gynecology and Obstetrics; and Olga Šípková, former world champion in aerobics.

On Thursday, October 20, WOD and osteoporosis was discussed on a morning TV program.
