Free seminar to be held on bone condition
A free seminar on a medical condition, in which bones become brittle and fragile, will be held at Blackpool Victoria Hospital from 10.30am until noon next Thursday.
The presentation – ‘Osteoporosis – who is at risk and current treatment strategies’ – will be led by Dr Chandini Rao, consultant rheumatologist and head of department, and Helen Veevers, osteoporosis specialist nurse, in the Cardiac Lecture Theatre.
Members of the public have been invited.
More than 300,000 patients a year in the UK are treated for broken bones that result from osteoporotic damage.
Most don’t know they have it until they have been diagnosed after a fracture, often caused by just a minor bump or fall.
