I'm headed home today from the NOF Int. Symposium on Osteoporosis. I'll see you tomorrow if you're coming to the 3:15 class. Please note that the 9:00 am class is back to it's regular time on Wed/Friday mornings. Click here to go to calendar link for the upcoming 6-week schedule that starts tomorrow.
Coming to this symposium was certainly eye opening and informative. I was the only exercise person amidst a sea of nurse practitioners, dieticians, physicians, researchers, and physical therapists. I'll start blogging about it as soon as I get home!
For several years, I have been communicating with the National Osteoporosis Foundation regarding safe exercises for women with osteoporosis. Awhile back, they suggested that I start a local NOF support group. I'm happy to say that Colleen Stone, MD, agreed to be a co-leader with me. Our first meeting is this Thursday at 7:30 at the Fairfield Public Library. Some of you had asked that I give a talk on what I learned here in Las Vegas and I will do that at the Thursday meeting. Oh, course, I'll be telling you as much as I can fit in during class, also!
