“FINE-TUNING YOUR BONES” - FREE LECTURE - MARCH 24, 2011
People often think that broken bones due to osteoporosis are a natural part of aging. Yet broken bones are not inevitable, as there are steps you can take throughout your life to protect your bone health – and you’re never too young or too old to take action.
“Inspiring Women: The Women’s Wellness Initiative” at Winthrop-University Hospital invites women to learn more about bone health at a free educational, entertaining event – “Fine-Tuning Your Bones” – on Thursday, March 24, 2011 at 7:00 PM. The program will be held at Winthrop’s Community Outreach Center, located at 101 Mineola Boulevard at the corner of Second Street in Mineola.
Jane Greensher, RN, MA, CCRC, LNC, Coordinator of Osteoporosis Education and Research at the Winthrop Osteoporosis Diagnostic, Research and Treatment Center, will discuss research findings regarding dietary supplements, new medications, and the impact of dietary choices and lifestyle on one’s risk of developing osteoporosis. A question and answer period will follow the lecture.
Bones-strengthening exercises will be demonstrated by Grace Rowan, MSN, RN, Community Outreach Educator. And, with both education and entertainment in mind, Don Wang, Health Educator, will offer a special “fine-tuning” musical presentation .
Attendees are asked to arrive at 6:45 PM for registration and to park in the rear of the building. Admission is free, but seating is limited and reservations are required. To reserve a seat, please call 1-866-WINTHROP (1-866-946-8476).
