Volunteers Needed to Lead Free Bone Builders Classes Throughout Montgomery County

 

Free Bone Builders classes to prevent and slow development of osteoporosis are offered at nine Montgomery County sites.  Osteoporosis causes bones to become thin and easily broken. Although osteoporosis can strike at any age, it affects one in three women and one in eight men over the age of 60. One out of every two women and one in four men over 50 will have an osteoporosis related fracture in their lifetime. The daytime Bone Builders classes help regular participants increase bone density naturally.
