All about Osteoporosis
The Osteoporosis Diagnosis Information Page is a collaborative project of NeedyMeds and the National Osteoporosis Foundation. It is intended to provide information on Osteoporosis and to help people with Osteoporosis find assistance paying for their medications.
The National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF) is the leading health organization dedicated to preventing osteoporosis and broken bones, promoting strong bones for life and reducing human suffering through programs of public and clinician awareness, education, advocacy and research. Established in 1984, NOF is the nation's only health organization solely dedicated to osteoporosis and bone health.
Osteoporosis is a major public health threat for an estimated 54 million Americans. Studies show that one in two women and up to one in four men over age 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis in their lifetime. NOF works to improve patient care and support for those who have broken bones due to osteoporosis and to educate the public to prevent osteoporosis and broken bones and promote strong bones for life.
