“Sticks and Stones Can Break Your Bones…Osteoporosis and Menopause” will be presented by Cuyuna Regional Medical Center Obstetrician/Gynecologist Rachel Cady, M.D., as a free virtual women’s health seminar Thursday, May 12, at 5 p.m. Register to receive a link to the free seminar at https://form.jotform.com/220186072057148.
In the Red Hot Mamas Menopause Management Education Program, women will learn how their bones are the strongest in their 20s, but as they age, they become thinner and lighter which leaves them vulnerable to fracture. According to Dr. Cady, as women’s estrogen levels fall at menopause, their built-in protection against osteoporosis subsides. Women are two to three times more likely than men to suffer from osteoporosis. Half of all women over age 50 will sustain an osteoporosis-related fracture and many women will die from complications from osteoporosis.
“Osteoporosis and Menopause” is part of a series of seminars offered by CRMC’s Women’s Health. Questions from participants will be answered. Find the full schedule of presentations and more educational information at www.cuyu
