2nd Canadian Musculoskeletal Conference

National Conference on Osteoporosis & Osteoarthritis | May 3 – 5, 2018 | Toronto, ON

Osteoporosis Canada hosted the 2nd Canadian Musculoskeletal Conference on muscle and bone May 3 – 5, 2018 in Toronto. A total of 213 delegates from across Canada attended this three day event.

The program included a trainee meeting for young investigators and a two day program targeting various topics on Bone and Muscle Health.

The Young Investigator Day included an abstract poster session. The posters were created to showcase Canadian research in bone. The top rated poster, submitted by Anne-Frédérique Turcotte was entitled “Effects of biliopancreatic diversion on bone turnover markers and association with hormonal factors in patients with severe obesity.” Anne-Frédérique then presented her poster to the main conference attendees on Friday. The runner ups were Dr. Ahmed Negm from McMaster and Matteo Ponzano from the University of Waterloo. The organizers were very pleased with all the applicants.

The two day program, based on evaluations received was a great success and met the goals outlined by the speakers. The event was accredited by the University of Toronto and endorsed by the International Osteoporosis Foundation.
