Caring for Older Patients Focus of Osteoporosis Fair

The UC San Diego student chapter of the American Geriatrics Society, with support from the Stein Institute for Research on Aging and the Academic Geriatric Resource Center, hosted an Osteoporosis Fair on campus to educate students about bone health and spark interest in the field of geriatrics.  Chancellor Khosla stopped by to see the eight interactive stations where students and faculty – from departments of medicine, family medicine, radiology, nutrition and pharmacy – showcased new findings on osteoporosis, answered questions and discussed common clinical issues.
