Recorded Webinar: Nutrition and Bone Health Across the Lifespan
It has been said that osteoporosis is pediatric disease with geriatric consequences. While osteoporosis and low bone mass affect about 54 million Americans, the good news is childhood, adolescence and early adulthood are prime times to build bone density. Bones require ongoing support as they are continuously remodeled throughout life. Join bone health expert Taylor Wallace, PhD for this in-depth look at building healthy bones across the lifespan.
After this session, participants will be able to:
- Describe the current research on bone biology, bone development and maintenance across the lifespan
- Explain how bone building nutrients and healthy dietary patterns help maintain bone health across the lifespan
- Discuss other lifestyle factors that impact bone health
