London Osteoporosis Clinic has set up a charitable foundation – The LOC Foundation.
LOC makes donations to LOC Foundation and other charities in the field.
The charity’s objectives are:
To offer training in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis and associated healthcare conditions;
To promote and advance medical knowledge with particular reference to all aspects of osteoporosis and all similar and related conditions;
To undertake research in relation thereto, and publish the useful results of such research; and
To advance the education of the public in the subject of osteoporosis and all similar and related conditions.
To set up awareness programmes which promote healthy lifestyle changes that prevent or alleviate osteoporosis.
To co-operate with other charities, voluntary bodies and statutory authorities and to exchange information and advice with them.
Please help raise awareness about osteoporosis and bone fractures
Together we can eradicate Osteoporosis Bone Breaks and prevent suffering
Every year, there are 524,000 osteoporosis-related fractures in the UK; 9 million worldwide.
Astoundingly, only 2 in 10 bone breaks receive a follow-up test, or treatment for osteoporosis. This issue is likely to get worse, as rationing increases in the NHS.
If you think this is UNACCEPTABLE, especially when we have effective, painless diagnostics and treatments that can reverse osteoporosis then please join us in the efforts to learn about bone health, early diagnosis and treatment.
Raising awareness among your family and friends goes a long way. To find out how you can help,
