National Osteoporosis Foundation Hires Taylor C. Wallace

July 19, 2013

Wallace will drive NOF’s focus on health and nutrition as key components of osteoporosis prevention, the foundation says.

The National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF; Washington, DC), the nation’s leading health organization dedicated to preventing osteoporosis and broken bones, has named Taylor C. Wallace, PhD, CFS, FACN, senior director of science, policy, and government affairs. Wallace was previously senior director, scientific and regulatory affairs, at dietary supplement association the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN; Washington, DC).

With his extensive scientific and regulatory experience in food science and nutrition, Wallace will drive NOF’s focus on health and nutrition as key components of osteoporosis prevention, the foundation says. During his tenure at CRN, Wallace spearheaded nutrition policy initiatives and developed new scientific reviews and original research for peer-reviewed literature.

“With NOF’s latest prevalence data showing that approximately nine million adults in the U.S. have osteoporosis and an additional 48 million have low bone mass, there’s never been a more urgent need for comprehensive science, policy, and legislative agendas to reduce the incidence of this debilitating disease,” Wallace said in a press release. “Only by working with congressional champions and like-minded corporate and government partners can we achieve our goal of educating the public and motivating them to take action and protect their bones.”
