Celebration of the Egyptian Academy of Bone Health (Upper Egypt)

We met the residents of the nursing home and educated them about osteoporosis: diagnosis, risk factors, diagnosis, prevention and treatment. A Structured questionnaire was distributed among them to measure the fracture risk, fall risk , sarcopenia risk and functional disability level. they were educated to use the Egyptian FRAX and calculate their fracture risk. Moreover they were educated about the proper nutrition and the type of exercises they need to build their bones and strengthen their muscles. They were advised to spread the information to their families and friends. Lastly, their mobile numbers were collected to send them the Arabic education material prepared by the IOF through the social media apps.
