Summer is a great time to enjoy the outdoors whether you are hiking on nature trails, heading to the beach, local park or in your own backyard. During the summer months, there are many ways to exercise, participate in organized sports and simply enjoy activities in the great outdoors. If you have osteoporosis – you may need to make modifications or choose a different way to stay active entirely depending on your condition. Our keynote speaker addresses outdoor activities for people with osteoporosis including racquet sports, hiking, horseback riding, cycling and more.

In partnership with The Collings Stevens Family Foundation.
