Bone Health: Make No Bones About It – A few generations ago, it was uncommon to hear mention of things like bone health and osteoporosis. The fact is the longer a person lives, the more likely she or he is to experience one or more bone fractures. Dr. Edward Feliciano, orthopedic surgeon for Connecticut Family Orthopedics, will talk on Thursday, July 12th, at noon, about the importance of maintaining bone health at Laurel Ridge Health Care Center, 642 Danbury Road (Rte 7). Reducing the chance of bone fractures as we age would provide for a higher quality of life and substantially reduce the healthcare costs. The majority of hip fractures, the most burdensome of all bone fractures, occur within the elder segment of our population. Dr. Feliciano, who received his Bachelor's degree from Yale and then attended Cornell University Medical College, will also talk about remaining active through flexibility, strength and endurance. This program is free and open to the public. Reservations are recommended as space is limited. A light lunch will be provided with reservations by calling Laurel Ridge at 203-438-8226.
