Scientific Advisory Council

The Scientific Advisory Council (SAC) is a volunteer membership comprised of experts in Osteoporosis and Bone Metabolism. The consultants are a multi-disciplinary group that represent clinicians, researchers and educators who advise the OC board and staff on scientific and medical issues. The members include; Geriatric and Internal Medicine, Rheumatology, Endocrinology, Radiology, Family Practice, Nuclear Medicine, Orthopaedics, Pharmacists, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Basic Science and Anatomy, Rehabilitation Medicine, Internal Medicine, Epidemiology, Genetics, Biochemistry, Physiotherapy and Nutrition.

The Chair of the SAC serves a three-year term that develops a strategic plan for the Council and oversees seven operating committees that direct the activities of the SAC. The seven committees include: Executive, Guidelines, Research, Knowledge Translation, COPN Advisory, Rapid Response and Development. The Senior Manager, Clinical and Scientific Programs for Osteoporosis Canada supports the SAC.
