Pathways to Prevention Workshop:
Appropriate Use of Drug Therapies for Osteoporotic Fracture Prevention

October 30-31, 2018 in Natcher Conference Center, NIH Campus, Bethesda, Maryland

About the Workshop

More than 10 million people in the United States have osteoporosis, a skeletal disorder that causes bones to become weak and fragile as a result of low bone mass. The condition makes people more susceptible to fractures, which can impair their ability to live independently and even threaten their lives

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) will convene a Pathways to Prevention (P2P) Workshop on Appropriate Use of Drug Therapies for Osteoporotic Fracture Prevention to assess the available scientific evidence to better understand the appropriate use of drugs for osteoporotic fracture prevention.
