Good bone health is important to all of us, and maintaining healthy bones starts early in life. In fact, building strong bones in childhood helps prevent osteoporosis in adulthood. At least 44 million Americans are affected by osteoporosis or low bone density. Ask your primary care provider about a referral to the Bone Health and Osteoporosis Clinic, or call (309) 672-4565 for more information.
