We are excited to share that 2024 marks the 40th anniversary of the Bone Health & Osteoporosis Foundation (BHOF)! Our mission has never been more critical given the fact that osteoporotic fractures are responsible for more hospitalizations than heart attacks, strokes, and breast cancer combined. People’s experience with osteoporosis varies greatly, but the good news is that it is manageable disease.

In commemoration of our 40th anniversary, we are conducting a search to select 40 inspiring osteoporosis patients representing various ages, genders, ethnicities, and regions of the U.S. to share their personal story/message via short videos. These patient stories will be featured on BHOF’s website and in a social media campaign throughout 2024. A select number of the 40 Faces of Osteoporosis patients may also be featured in a new broadcast and radio public service announcement distributed to television news programs and radio stations nationwide in English and Spanish.

Nominations are closed. If you have questions, please email us at info@bonehealthandosteoporosis.org.

BHOF is grateful to Amgen Inc. and UCB, Inc. for their support of this initiative.
