Scientific Advisory Council

We look to the best experts to inform our care guidelines for patients and care providers. Our Scientific Advisory Council (SAC) is made up of experts in Osteoporosis and Bone Metabolism and is a volunteer membership. Comprised of clinicians, researchers and educators, the SAC advises Osteoporosis Canada’s board and staff on scientific and medical issues.
