Their collaborative Heartland Osteoporosis Prevention Study is still looking for participants!
The goal of the study is to evaluate the best way to prevent bone loss in women during the first five (5) years of menopause. This study will compare recommended Calcium and Vitamin D intake to bone-preserving medication and bone loading exercises.
