21st Annual Wisconsin Bone Club Meeting

Madison, WI US
April 29, 2016 to April 30, 2016

Osteoporosis is an extremely important problem, especially given our aging population.  Fractures are also very expensive and lead to significant expense, mortality, and morbidity.  HEDIS measurements suggest we underperform in managing osteoporosis.
