Learn more about osteoporosis


If you’ve recently been diagnosed with osteoporosis and would like to learn more about it, come along to an information event organised by the Bedfordshire support group.

It’s in the Exhibition Room at at Incuba in Brewers Hill Road, Dunstable, at 2pm on Wednesday November 25. Special guest speaker is Luton&Dunstable Hospital osteoporosis specialist Dr Rabindranath Chanda.

Group founder Deborah Bird said: “It’s not only the elderly who are affected. We’re trying to raise awareness that some medications for cancer and epilepsy can increase the risk, as can conditions such as colitis, coeliac disease and Crohn’s disease.

“And we’re hoping that various charities will take stalls in the Exhibition Room.”
