London Osteoporosis Clinic has set up a charitable foundation – Global Osteoporosis Foundation
LOC makes donations to GOF and other charities in the field.
The charity’s objectives are:
The advancement of health for the public benefit by assisting in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis and associated health conditions, in particular, but not exclusively, by:
- providing information to patients and raising awareness amongst health professionals, policy makers and the general public to all aspects of osteoporosis and all similar and related conditions;
- supporting study and research into the causes of osteoporosis, its prevention and treatment and publishing and disseminating the useful results of latest research; and
- establishing awareness programmes which promote healthy lifestyle changes that may help to prevent or alleviate osteoporosis”
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.
Please help raise awareness among your family and friends, to find out how you can help.
