‘Reducing the risk of and managing Osteoporosis’

Do you want to learn more about reducing your risk of osteoporosis and practical tips on how to manage osteoporosis? Consider having a trained volunteer spokesperson from the organization meet with you and your group of colleagues for a personalized session. An excellent selection of pamphlets about calcium, exercise, drug therapies and many other topics will be made available to you at each session.

To arrange a date and location that is convenient for both you and the speaker contact the Manitoba Chapter. There is no charge for these services however a donation to the Chapter is appreciated.

 

Support groups

‘Supporting the Newly Diagnosed’ 

This program is designed for individuals who have recently been diagnosed with osteoporosis.  Once a month, we offer the opportunity to attend a presentation containing accurate and pertinent information and an introduction to the variety of resources available through our Chapter. Participants can share their stories and have their questions answered.

If you or someone you know has recently been diagnosed with osteoporosis, contact the Chapter office for further information. There is no fee to attend but registration is required as space is limited. Please call the Chapter office at (204) 772-3498 or email manitoba@osteoporosis.ca

 

‘Break Through’

This is a seven-session peer support group program. Participants receive interactive information about bone health and will have the opportunity to actively engage in discussions and share experiences. A new topic will be addressed each session.

Spring 2016 session schedule and location: TBA
