Bone Builders in my Community

Bone Builders is an osteoporosis prevention community education program that started in Maricopa County, Arizona and the Phoenix metro area. Therefore, we have many osteoporosis-related resources available to the community including presentations, brochures, articles and bookmarks.

Presentations:

Bring Bone Builders to your group for an informative presentation on osteoporosis prevention. A Bone Builders presentation covers:

  • An introduction to osteoporosis
  • Risk factors for the disease
  • Prevention information including calcium and weight-bearing exercise
  • Information on community resources and about becoming a Bone Builder volunteer

Our presentations can be done as a one-time presentation or as a series of short classes and can be modified depending on time allowance. In addition, if feasible, we could conduct a bone density screening later for the class participants (hosting organization may be asked to help with costs). A screening can help motivate people to improve their behavior.

Brochures and Posters

The brochure "Like Mother, Like Daughter . . . Building Strong Bones for A Lifetime" focuses primarily on women ages 25-55, and covers osteoporosis prevention and treatment. It is in English and has references to further information. Do not photocopy this document.
