The Fundacion de Osteoporosis y Enfermedades Metabolicas Osteos of Panama wins award with educational "My Bank of Bones" program


At the IOF World Wide Conference of Osteoporosis Patient Societies in Bangkok, Thailand on September 30, 2005 the Fundacion de Osteoporosis y Enfermedades Metabolicas Osteos was awarded an IOF-Novartis Osteoporosis Education Grant to the value of USD 10,000. The award-winning project, called “My Bank of Bones,” is a play and learning program designed for pre-school children 5-6 years of age, at 12 day care centres in low income communities. It will help children to recognize foods which are healthy. They will also do exercise and relate this to the importance of bone and muscle strength. The children will be empowered to learn how bones are built by filling their ‘Bank of Bones’, a plastic jar, with picture cards of the food they eat and the exercise they do. They will take home recipes for their parents which provide good nutrition even on a low budget. Teachers will be given a 3-day seminar and provided with fun educational material, including work books, puppets, food charts, cut out materials, etc.
