New NIH website offers easy access to information on bone health.
The National Institutes of Health has enabled a new resource on its website to provide the latest science-based information on bone health and bone disease.
The site provides information such as strategies for bone health, including the prevention and management of osteoporosis. In addition, a Check Up On Your Bones tool, an online interactive bone health assessment, provides personalized information on osteoporosis risk, as well as approaches to enhance bone health.
Materials on the site fill important gaps in information, such as the lack of knowledge among men about osteoporosis. Members of various multicultural communities, including Hispanics and Latinos, African-Americans, Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders, and American Indians and Alaska Natives, will find resources specific to their needs. Bone health information is available in English, Spanish and Chinese languages.
