About This Website

Boneporosis is a website about osteoporosis. The Latina Health Project produced the site as part of our mission to bring accurate and timely health information to everyone, regardless of sex or ethnic background.

We do not claim the site is comprehensive, and even so, a website is no substitute for face-to-face medical care. See a doctor if you think you have signs of osteoporosis. Painless, non-invasive procedures can help the doctor determine if you have the condition and what treatment, if any, is appropriate.

ashley The Latina Health Project is a non-profit organization funded by private donations. We are registered in Travis County, Texas. We have no full-time employees and our writers and advisors work mainly as volunteers out of an interest in public health. The donors have no financial interest in treatment or testing for osteoporosis. We will never accept donations or financial support from pharmaceutical companies, medical device companies, or healthcare providers.

Osteoporosis is a public health issue that demands an outreach because of its prevalence and because doctors have means to address it. And because there are methods to reduce your risk before you get osteoporosis, if you aware.

We cannot give medical advice. If you have any non-medical site related questions or comments, contact the site’s webmaster.
