Organizational Alliance

The AOA created an Organizational Alliance to collaborate with other organizations in the shared mission/goal of increasing awareness and improving the care of patients with osteoporosis and related fractures. 

The Organizational Alliance is created out of a desire to recognize those contributions and joint efforts, and to forge cooperation around the objectives of the Own the Bone program wherever possible to improve the quality of life for patients who have suffered fractures.  The AOA recognizes the critical need for involvement from a number of specialties and providers in resolving the osteoporosis treatment gap and values the substantial contributions of other providers and specialty organizations to the program.
