The rate of hip fractures is two to three times higher in women than men; however the one year mortality following a hip fracture is nearly twice as high for men as for women.

Osteoporosis is a major public health threat for more than 28 million Americans, 80 percent of whom are women. In the U.S. today, 10 million individuals already have the disease and 18 million more have low bone mass, placing them at increased risk for osteoporosis. 80 of those affected by osteoporosis are women. 8 million American women V hr V Arts Festival begin- dont ning June 24 and remain on disComplay through July 30.
