Unlocking the Secrets of Bone Health with Claire Gill (Ep. 12)

Have you heard stories about the frailty of age and the risk of breaking bones? Did you know that osteoporosis contributes to 2 million broken bones and 19 billion related costs each year? 

By 2025, it is anticipated that this will rise to 3 million fractures and 25 billion in costs annually. 

So how do we identify this risk of bone loss or osteoporosis? 

In this episode, Barbara Archer is joined by Claire Gill, CEO of the Bone Health and Osteoporosis Foundation since January 2013, when she led the rebranding of this Nonprofit Organization. Claire has dedicated her life’s work to promoting strong bones for life and reducing human suffering through programs of public and clinical awareness, education, advocacy, and research. And if you think that is impressive, she then launched the National Menopause Foundation to be a trusted source to raise awareness and understanding of menopause through education, activism, and community building.
