Bones ‘n’ Beer
Original Air Date: Thursday, March 25, 2021
For the past 9 years, Vancouver, BC has hosted Bones ‘n’ Beer – an event where men gather at a favourite pub for a hearty rib dinner, paired with craft beer and listen to healthcare professionals speak to the group about men and their risk of osteoporosis.
This year, we aren’t able to gather in our favourite pub but we can get together online – so grab a beverage, prepare your favourite rib meal and join other men as you learn about your bone health and a disease that affects 2 million Canadian women and men.
