Physical Inactivity and Bone Health in Younger and Older Adults

Wednesday, March 25, 2015
Noon-1 p.m.
Eau Claire Golf & Country Club
828 Clubview Lane, Altoona

Dr. Saori Braun, UW-Eau Claire assistant professor of kinesiology, will discuss osteoporosis, a condition known as the "silent killer" due to its symptomless development and lack of public awareness. How can we prevent osteoporosis by maximizing bone mass during growth and minimizing bone loss as we age? How does physical inactivity impact bone health among individuals in today's society? Braun's presentation will address these questions.
