Student-Run Groups — Partners for Bone Health

A Student-Run Group is a membership organization dedicated to the community service and the mission of American Bone Health.

We support our Student-Run Groups with:

• Training
• Planning fundraising to support group’s community service activities
• Turn-key community education programs
• National programs and social marketing campaigns

Learn, teach, grow, lead

This Partners for Bone Health provides Student Run Groups with structured training in osteoporosis prevention, diagnosis, and treatment that affects older adults. The 7-hour online training prepares Student Run Groups to teach others how to prevent bone loss and fractures. This knowledge about bone health will help students support targeted community service and be leaders in their communities.

What to know about bone health
and fracture prevention during COVID-19

  • Remove fall dangers in your home.
  • Stay physically active, and at least 6 feet away from others.
  • Eat for proper nutrition, and take a supplement if needed to get enough calcium and vitamin D.
  • Stick with your osteoporosis medicines and ask your doctor for extra if you’re unable to go to the pharmacy.
  • If you are due for Reclast, there is little concern about delaying for a few weeks or months.
  • If you take Prolia or Evenity injections, don’t miss your appointment.  Some facilities offer “drive-through” injections. Check with your doctor.
  • Bone density testing can be postponed, if necessary.
  • Speak with your doctor about the possibility of telephone and video visits.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has a page with steps you can take to reduce your risk of catching the virus if you have a chronic illness.

Be well. We are here for you if you have any questions.
