Remember

As we enter Memorial Day Weekend, let us remember those who have served in times of war, declared and undeclared.

Evil exists in our world.  Those who survived the fight against the insanity of Hitler and the Holocaust are literally dying out.  We have not adequately honored them or those involved in more recent conflicts.

Peace and safety for ourselves and others in the world unfortunately requires sacrifices by our military veterans.  Some die, some are maimed physically or mentally, all are permanently changed.

We should thank them.

We can at least remember them.

The second meeting of the Iowa Bone Club was a great success.  Hats off to Dudley Phipps, PA, of Iowa Ortho for organizing a great meeting, and to his staff for the work necessary to make it happen.  Thanks to Lilly for assisting in bringing Robert Lindsey, MD, from Helen Hayes Osteoporosis Research Center to be our featured speaker. Thanks to Amgen and Radius for their support as well.

We had over two dozen bone health providers and staff gathered in Des Moines yesterday.  We came from Burlington, Cedar Rapids and Waterloo in the east, from Spirit Lake and Omaha in the west, and many from the center of the state.  Eight outstanding speakers!

We will be meeting in Cedar Rapids in the fall, and Spirit Lake next spring, dates to be announced.

May is National Osteoporosis Month.  That should be National Osteoporosis Prevention Month.  Or perhaps National Bone Health Optimization Month.
