Program Overview

This complimentary 1-hour live CME webcast will provide primary care clinicians with an update on osteoporosis and bone health. It’s understandable if you feel barraged and overwhelmed by all of the data on screening, BMD, and fractures. After reading that data with critical insight, Dr. David Plourd will distill that information into practical clinical pearls. Current screening guidelines, modalities, and current prevention & treatment regimens will be highlighted.
