Each year NOF celebrates families – mothers and daughters in particular – building healthy bones for life.
September 26, 2011
New York, NY
Although osteoporosis is a hereditary disease that a mother’s genes may pass onto a daughter, a mother also can give her daughter the strength she needs to lower her risk. It begins with a conversation that helps a daughter build a strong body, discover her bone health needs and learn how a healthy diet and exercise can help prevent the disease.
A Gift from Mothers to Daughters® luncheon. As your source of strength, National Osteoporosis Foundation is committed to raising awareness for our work in osteoporosis prevention, and supporting this special event is one way you can get involved. This year’s luncheon will be particularly special as we launch our Generations of Strength: Mothers and Daughters Campaign!
11:00 a.m. Silent Auction Reception* and Judith Ripka Shopping Boutique
12:00 p.m. Luncheon and Awards Presentations
