Cyprus Society Against Osteoporosis and Myoskeletal Diseases
One-minute risk test and a rose on Mothers Day
The importance of being aware of one's own risk for osteoporosis was underlined by the Cyprus Society Against Osteoporosis and Myoskeletal Disease's Mothers Day risk awareness campaign. Women in Nicosia and Limassol were given an informational brochure, the one minute risk test - and a rose on Mothers Day, May 11, 2003. The campaign was held with the support of MSD and the Apollonion Private Hospital,which offered coupons for DEXA evaluation to those women who were at high risk of osteoporosis. Dr. Petros Petrou, president of the Society, offered free consultation as a follow up to the bone densitmetry results.
