  • Overview

    Anyone in medicine will freely admit that osteoporosis is a major health threat in the United States, and yet the majority of patients with osteoporosis remain undiagnosed and untreated. In fact, fewer than one-third of cases have even been diagnosed, and only 14% of women with osteoporosis receive treatment.

He's also Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine. Dr. Matt Birnholz hosts.
