Ask Congress to Support the Creation of a National Bone Health Program
Susan Allison, RNC, BSN, MPA posted:
The Bone Health Promotion and Research Act (H.R. 3856) would create a national bone health program by implementing recommendations from the National Action Plan for Bone Health, which is the result of the U.S. Surgeon General's Call to Action and the 2008 National Summit on Bone Health.

A comprehensive national bone health program currently does not exist. Very few states fund education, public awareness and prevention programs, and these programs are threatened annually by declining state budgets.

Creating a bone health program focused on education, prevention and research would allow for national educational outreach through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); state grants for comprehensive osteoporosis and related bone disease surveillance and prevention programs; and expanded research activities at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Ask your Member of Congress to support the creation of a national bone health program by cosponsoring H.R. 3856 by visiting the Advocacy section of the NOF Web site at
