Van Andel Institute (VAI) is proud to hold A Conversation About Osteoporosis: An Impending Public Health Crisis hosted by Carol Van Andel. In recent years, fears over rare side effects associated with osteoporosis drugs have led to a significant drop in use of the medications for the condition, fueling concerns about a rise in hip fractures and other serious osteoporosis-related injuries. This event will focus on the impending crisis, current osteoporosis research and information on how individuals can become their own healthcare advocate. During the event guests will hear from VAI’s Dr. Bart Williams and Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital’s Dr. John F. Butzer, along with a keynote address from the Mayo Clinic’s Dr. Sundeep Khosla.
