DESCRIPTION

Attendees will learn about what osteoporosis is, how it’s diagnosed and treated, and what steps they can take to improve bone health and prevent broken bones. With information on how medical conditions, medications, and family history can affect your risk of fractures you can take action to build your own road map for better bone health. Leave with specific tips on nutrition and fall prevention, that include a series of simple exercises to improve balance, strength and flexibility.

Presented by The Lake Merritt in collaboration with American Bone Health www.AmericanBoneHealth.org.

PRESENTER

Dr. Lani Simpson, DC, CCD, is one of the leading experts in women’s health care and the author of Dr. Lani's No-Nonsense Bone Health Guide. Dr. Simpson is a chiropractic doctor and a Certified Clinical (bone) Densitometrist (CCD). The International Society of Bone Densitometry awards the CCD certification to those who have demonstrated (through an exam) a mastery of an approved body of knowledge in osteoporosis diagnosis though DXA and CT scans, peripheral x-ray devices, and ultrasound devices. A CCD is required to demonstrate proficiency in reading and analyzing bone density test results, bone related lab work, and medications used to treat osteoporosis. Dr. Simpson was the first alternative doctor to be awarded this certification.
