One in three women and twenty percent of men over age 50 worldwide experience bone fractures as a result of osteoporosis. This lecture will review ways we can improve our bone health as well as our current understanding of prevention, risk factors and the latest screening and treatments for osteoporosis. The seminar is presented by a Ph.D. Chemist from Johns Hopkins University with more than 23 years of experience. Image by Laboratoires Servier, CC BY-SA 3.0 via Wikimedia Commons.
Join us for a wildlife and cultural day at Golden Gate Park! First, we enjoy a walking tour of the Japanese Tea Garden, then break for a Japanese lunch, and last but not least, we explore Stow Lake and Strawberry Hill with the Audubon Society.
Spend your morning on a 90-minute expert-led tour of the Japanese Friendship Garden that was built as a symbol of everlasting friendship between the City of San Jose and its Sister City of Okayama in Japan. This tranquil garden has picturesque bridges, waterfalls and Koi pond. At this time of year, the cherry blossoms should be in bloom. After the tour, we will have an outdoors group brown bag (bring your own) lunch under shady redwoods. Space is limited so reserve your spot now.
