Healthy Bones: Healthy Communities in Pittsburgh, PA
The purpose of this three-year training program is to engage a national medical cohort focused on osteoporosis and healthy bones, targeting the educational and support needs of family physicians, internists, and advanced practice providers.
Our goal is to train a minimum of 10 family practice, internal medicine, and/or obstetrics/gynecology (OB/GYN) providers per community. Using a teach one/train one model, each one of these community leaders will be asked to reach out to colleagues in her/his region to share information about osteoporosis. A larger goal is to impact the “bone crisis” America’s Seniors are facing.
While this concept is activated at the local level where people access their healthcare, the vision of communities of practice has far-reaching impact and the potential to raise the level of awareness and bring about true change for osteoporosis both regionally and nationally.
