Sample Communications

The National Bone Health Alliance (NBHA) has launched a national awareness campaign, 2Million2Many, to highlight the connection between fractures and osteoporosis in support of NBHA’s “20/20” vision to reduce fractures 20% by the year 2020. Every year, there are 2 million bone breaks that are no accident but signs of osteoporosis. Yet only 2 in 10 older women who break a bone due to osteoporosis are treated or receive a simple test for osteoporosis. The call to action is simple: If your patients 50 and older experience a fracture, request an osteoporosis test. If we let osteoporosis keep hiding, we’re giving it a chance to break us bone by bone.

As a member of NBHA, [Organization’s Name] invites you to speak with your patients and colleagues about the need to prevent, diagnose, and treat osteoporosis by displaying a campaign poster in your office and sharing campaign materials with your patients. Learn more about the campaign and how you can get involved and spread the word that 2 Million is 2 Many at www.2Million2Many.org

Every year, there are 2 million bone breaks that are no accident but signs of osteoporosis. Join us as we bring osteoporosis out of hiding and spread the word that 2 Million is 2 Many.

Most people who break a bone are treated in the emergency room or at an urgent care facility. And life goes on. But the fact is, men and women as young as 50 may have osteoporosis and not even know it. Yet only 2 in 10 older women who break a bone due to osteoporosis are treated or receive a simple test for osteoporosis.

If we let osteoporosis keep hiding, we’re giving it a chance to break us bone by bone.

NBHA’s awareness campaign, 2Million2Many (2M2M), highlights the connection between fractures and osteoporosis and the two million bone breaks each year that are no accident but signs of osteoporosis in support of NBHA’s “20/20” vision to reduce fractures 20% by the year 2020.  The call to action is simple: If you or someone you care about breaks a bone after age 50, ask your healthcare professional for an osteoporosis test.
