Osteoporosis: Is it going to get you?

By Katherine Aitchison, on 20 October 2011

I (like many others) have a family history of osteoporosis so it was with some vested interest and a little trepidation that I attended today’s Lunch Hour Lecture: ‘Osteoporosis: Bouncing Babies to Crumbling Wrinklies‘. The speaker was Professor Allen Goodship of the UCL Institute of Orthopaedics and Musculoskeletal Science and the lecture was in honour of World Osteoporosis Day. He aimed not to scare us with the grim facts and figures of osteoporosis, but instead to give us some ideas on how to avoid the condition.
