Own the Bone Organizational Alliance member, the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF), created and organizes World Osteoporosis Day (WOD) every October 20th. This day launches a year-long campaign to raise global awareness of the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of osteoporosis and metabolic bone disease. It aims to put bone health and fracture prevention on the global health agenda and reaches out to health-care professionals, the media, policy makers, patients, and the public at large.
In 2019 the campaign will feature “THAT’S OSTEOPOROSIS” as a headline, and, for the first time, will highlight emotionally impactful visuals and stories of real people living with osteoporosis in all regions of the world. The official campaign toolkit is linked here.
Own the Bone subscribers can also access a special Own the Bone media kit to help publicize their commitment to bone health in relation to World Osteoporosis Day. The media kit includes press releases, an activity guide, and a social media guide and is linked here. Star Performer sites will recieve additional materials in a mailing this month.

Upcoming Own the Bone Education
The Own the Bone® Orthopaedic Bone Health ECHO® aims to grow and share bone health knowledge and skills among orthopaedic providers in order to reduce the incidence of fragility fractures and positively impact bone health treatment. Each month, a panel of experts will host participants on a videoconferencing platform to discuss current topics related to bone health and to initiate a dialogue around patient cases presented by participants. These "teleECHO® clinics" are multidisciplinary and interactive, so participants are encouraged to learn but also to share their knowledge and experiences.
Upcoming Clinic Date: Thursday, September 19
Time: 12:00pm - 1:15pm CT
Presenter: Natalie Eddy, DNP, FNP-BC
Topic: Denialism vs. Osteoparanoia: Patient Mindset and Overcoming Barriers to Care
To register for this session or future sessions, please sign-up below for the ECHO email list. Registrants will receive emails the week before each session detailing how to log in for the video conference. There is no cost associated with participating in Project ECHO.
If you have already registered, you have been placed on our ECHO mailing list. You will receive log in instructions via email prior to each call.
Participants are encouraged to submit patient cases and present them during future calls. Please contact Associate Program Manager, Ben Grace, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Own the Bone will be featured during a mini-symposium at the 2019 Orthopaedic Trauma Association Annual Meeting in Denver, Colorado.
Date and Time: Saturday, September 28 at 2:15pm
Moderator: Stephen L. Kates, MD, FAOA
Faculty: Kyle J. Jeray, MD, FAOA and Joseph M. Lane, MD, FAOA
Topic: Fragility Fractures and Bone Health: Current State of the Art
Description: Fragility fractures have become nearly epidemic in the United States among older adults with over 2 million fractures each year - more than heart attacks, strokes, and breast cancer combined. Orthopedic surgeons are in a unique position to advantage of the ‘teachable moment’ of a fragility fracture and take the extra steps to help patients prevent future fractures. This mini-symposium will expose attendees to methods for managing fragility fractures, and will review successful strategies for establishing and running their own secondary fracture prevention program.
Staff will also be available to address any questions!
