The health of women is a critical factor in our country’s success. The
National Association of Commissions for Women (NACW) is pleased to provide
important information on women’s health issues.
NACW is particularly proud of its partnership with Procter & Gamble on a
unique toolkit to assist NACW member commissions in educating their
communities on osteoporosis. Information on this disease and the Healthy
BONES initiative is included in this section.
The National Association of Commissions for Women (NACW) recognizes the debilitating and serious consequences of osteoporosis. NACW is proud to add its voice to the education efforts on this growing health concern through its “Healthy BONES” Project available to NACW members for their communities.
The National Osteoporosis Foundation estimates that 10 million Americans age 50 and older have osteoporosis and another 34 million are at risk for the disease – the majority of these are women.
