Each year, over 300,000 people ages 65 and older are hospitalized for a hip fracture. Women make up the majority of hip fracture hospitalizations. Poor bone strength and osteoporosis are often silent, even though they are the biggest risk factors for fractures. In this talk, we will review how you can minimize your risk of fracture and hospitalization by improving your bone health.
