Congratulations to Dr. Famida Jiwa, the President and CEO of Osteoporosis Canada, who has recently been re-elected to the position of Chair of the Patient Societies Subcommittee of the CNS of the IOF for a 4th term of two years.
The Committee of National Societies (CNS) currently comprises 225 full or associate member societies in 93 countries, territories and regions worldwide. Members are independent, not-for-profit osteoporosis societies or organizations, which carry out medical activities, generate public awareness and policy change, and provide a variety of services to people with bone, muscle and joint disorders. The Patient Societies Subcommittee is an important CNS forum for sharing information about bone health awareness and education campaigns. The Patient Societies Subcommittee meets at least once a year.
