The Impact of America’s Osteoporosis Crisis on States

Monday, May 17, 2021
3:00-3:45pm ET
(2pm CT/1pm MT/12pm PT/11am Alaska/9am Hawaii)

Join WIG as we discuss the first ever state-by-state data on the economic and human impact of osteoporotic fractures, revealing significant variation by state and by race and ethnicity and what legislators can do to have an impact.  The total annual cost for osteoporotic fractures was estimated at $57 billion in 2018 and is expected to grow to over $95 billion in 2040, as our population ages.

Moderated by:

Florida State Representative Jackie Toledo
