Osteoporosis Society (Singapore)
BONE UP mass workout successful - help line available
The OSS partnered with the Singapore Sports Council and several women's organisation to conduct a Bone Up Mass Workout entitled BE AN ACTIVE WOMAN on 13 November 2005. Some 6000 women over the age of 40 participated in this event.
A hotline has been open from 12 October to assess the risks of women over the age of 40 using the Osteoporosis Self Assessment Tool for Asian Women (OSTA) chart.
Callers with high risk or medium risk with additional risk factors are entitled to a DXA scan at a very special discounted rate. This is made possible by the hospitals that have come forward to give their strong support for this worthy cause.
