Osteofit Instructor Kim Hamilton will present information about exercise and osteoporosis at the Sept. 24 meeting of the Comox Valley Osteoporosis Support Group.
Osteoporosis is a condition that causes bones to become thin and porous, decreasing bone strength and leading to increased risk of breaking a bone. It’s estimated that one in three women and one in five men will suffer with osteoporosis in their lifetime.
The presentation will be interactive and is open to anyone who is living with osteoporosis and who would like to learn more about the role of exercise.
The meeting begins at 2 p.m. at the Comox Valley Nursing Centre, 615 10th Street., Courtenay.
