Thank you to everyone who supported World Osteoporosis Day and Osteoporosis Australia’s Building Healthy Bones Throughout Life Summit yesterday.
VIVA! has been supporting World Osteoporosis Day and the fantastic work of OA for nine years, and we were thrilled to see so many Aussies getting behind the ‘Love your bones’ theme for 2011.
The Summit in Sydney brought together more than 100 leading health and exercise experts, government representatives and consumer groups to set clear recommendations on calcium, vitamin D and exercise requirements to prevent the onset of osteoporosis for Australians across the generations. Summit organisers will release the final recommendations in approximately a week’s time. For more information, visit the Osteoporosis Australia website.
If you missed it, here are some of the highlights from the day on Twitter. A special thanks to Sydney Swans midfielder, Jude Bolton, for joining us at the Summit and raising awareness online.
