Bone Health Across the Lifespan
Assoc. Prof. Caitríona Cunningham, UCD School of Public Health, Physiotherapy and Sports Science will explain why looking after bone health is critical to build bone and slow down bone loss across the lifespan for both women and men. Osteoporosis is however more prevalent in women with an associated greater risk of fragility fracture (e.g. wrist, spine and hip fracture).
Caitríona is an MISCP and CORU registered Physiotherapist, and Musculoskeletal Health and Exercise researcher as well as being the Codirector of the UCD Better Bones Programme.
