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.

Backyard Blue Zones

My backyard is drier than Katoski along Blackhawk Creek.  The spring wildflowers are different.

Scilla were first, followed by bloodroot.  Daffys and narcissus, each variety a few days later.  Bellwort is always brief.  False anemone, toothwort, black cohash, blue myrtle.  Prairie trillium are the best in the nearly 40 years I have savored them.  Redbuds are spectacular this year.  Mayapples, starry nose Soloman seal, lillies of the valley, Jacob’s ladder, true Soloman seal, shooting star, are up but not blooming yet.  French lilacs have started, but Miss Kim and Persian not yet.  Rose Rhododendrons are a mass of hudreds of blossoms.

Anther Blue Zones experience.
