Assessment of Exercise Benefits for Bone Growth

Assessment of Exercise Benefits for Bone Growth Abstract: Osteoporosis is a growing public health concern, affecting increasing numbers of older Americans as we move further into the 21st century. Among senior citizens, osteoporotic fracture is a major cause of sickness and death, with dire economic consequences and reduced quality of life for affected individuals and their family members. Osteoporosis is considered to be a pediatric disease with adult onset. Unhealthy bone growth during childhood establishes a poor foundation for adult bone strength, leading to high fracture risk across the life span. Adoption of appropriate exercise and diet behavior during childhood is an attractive strategy to reduce lifetime fracture risk without drugs. Current research is using innovative research tools to evaluate how youth exercise may affect development of bone mass, structure, density and theoretical strength to build a strong base for adult bone health. The Asa Gray Seminar Series is sponsored by the Asa Gray Biological Society, and is the longest running seminar series at Utica College. Scientists are invited from throughout the region to present seminars on their ongoing research. All lectures are held in Donahue Auditorium, Gordon Science Center, at 4:00 p.m. An informal reception immediately follows. Call (315) 792-3028 for more information.
