  • Do you want to help prevent osteoporosis in older Black women? Do you have a mother, wife, grandmother, sister, aunt, or friend who wants to help?

  • Black women in good health, ages 50-75, now in menopause, are invited to participate in Winthrop's three-year investigation of the prevention of osteoporosis, sponsored by the National Institute of Health (NIH): "Osteopenia in Black Women: Prevention of Bone Loss with Vitamin D Supplementation."

  • The goal is to improve bone density and prevent fractures, through Vitamin D supplementation.

  • ABSOLUTELY NO PHARMACEUTICALS ARE INVOLVED. Participants receive safe levels of Vitamin D and receive a physical examination at six month intervals. Bone density scans are included.

  • All physical examinations and Vitamin D supplementation are free.

  • John Aloia, MD, Winthrop's Chairman of Medicine/Chief, Division of Endocrinology, is the Principal Investigator.
