The ongoing collaboration between The Brookfield Chair in Fracture Prevention and Osteoporosis Canada has resulted in a new program BreakFree – resulting in new resources for the continued growth and establishment of new Fracture Liaison Service (FLS) sites across Canada.
St. Michael’s Hospital (SMH) in Toronto put into place the first Fracture Liaison Service (FLS) program – the first of its kind in Canada and the program has been a leader in the FLS movement across the country, and worldwide, since 2002.
Dr. Earl Bogoch has been appointed the inaugural holder of the Brookfield Chair in Fracture Prevention. This University of Toronto chair, a global first of its type, has been established at the University of Toronto and St. Michael’s Foundation through the generosity of Brookfield Partners Foundation, which provided a $3 million grant. Dr. Bogoch was appointed after a Faculty search process.
