Osteoporosis Teleconference

Join us on February 15th between 12:00 pm and 1:30 pm EST. We have over 25 companies (more than 115 individuals) that have made the decision to listen in as Dr. Jeri Nieves discusses:

  • Osteoporosis as a serious public health threat
  • Diet, especially calcium and vitamin D and exercise play a key and important role in bone health
  • Clinical and Diagnostic tools to determine who is at risk for osteoporosis as well as who should receive treatment
  • Treatments available to reduce fracture risk

If you are not already familiar with Dr. Jeri Nieves, she is from Helen Hayes Hospital in New York, where she is Director of Bone Density Testing. Dr. Nieves is also an Associate Professor of Clinical Epidemiology at Columbia University. Dr. Nieves has co-authored over 60 journal articles, reviews, and book chapters on nutrition, epidemiology, and osteoporosis. She is a graduate of Columbia University where she received her Ph.D. in Epidemiology, following a Master's Degree in Nutrition from Cornell University. Her current main interest is in calcium and vitamin D and the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis. She is a recipient of a grant from the National Institute of Health to study the effect of vitamin D supplementation in black postmenopausal women. She is currently working on two studies of young adults to determine the role of nutrition, exercise and menstrual function on bone and stress fractures. Dr. Nieves serves on the Editorial Board of Osteoporosis International and is the Principal Investigator for the New York State Osteoporosis Prevention and Education Program.
