The Bone Health & Osteoporosis Foundation (BHOF) and National Association of Nurse Practitioners in Women’s Health (NPWH) are pleased to announce the launch of a new Bone Health module as part of the NPWH Well-Woman Visit App. With more than 125,000 downloads, the Well Woman App is designed for healthcare providers as a helpful tool for the well-woman visit.
With a focus on health screening, the app includes topics such as STD and cervical cancer screening, cardiovascular risk, assessment of IBS, menopause, fibroids, brain health, and vaginal health. Recognizing that half of all women over the age of 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis in her lifetime, BHOF and NPWH experts worked together to create a specific section on bone health to be included in the Well Woman App. This new module includes information about bone health throughout the lifespan for women including: prevention, diagnosis, and osteoporosis treatment options.
