Screening & Education


September 2022 dates to be announced soon! ​

OUR MISSION. Our nonprofit is committed to preventing falls and fractures, osteoporosis awareness and prevention, and building and maintaining strong bones. With free educational and screening events, we focus on maintaining quality of life and independence for older adults in our region. 

Our FREE Screenings are important for identifying and understanding your individual risk of fracture and knowing your risks for falling. Your donations allow us to continue our efforts! Thank you. 


This website provides resources that are important not only for older adults (men and women), but individuals of all ages.
