Osteoporosis Canada is excited to announce a video series on exercise and osteoporosis for Osteoporosis Month, developed in partnership with the University of Waterloo and Geriatric Education and Research in Aging Sciences Centre.

Each day, from Monday to Friday, for the month of November, we will post a new video to provide ideas for safe and effective exercise and physical activity. We will start our video series telling the stories of four very different people with osteoporosis and showing you their innovative solutions to keep healthy and active.
