The mission of the National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF) Dallas Education & Support Group (also known as Bone Buddies) is to meet regularly and offer education, information, encouragement and support to people who are affected by osteoporosis or osteopenia, either personally or through their friends and families.
The group is an affiliate of NOF and as such has pledged to support the organizations goals by:
- Providing accurate, up-to-date osteoporosis information to patients, as well as to family members and caregivers as appropriate; and
- creating opportunities for affected persons to share concerns, problems and coping strategies with the goal of better managing their condition.
Bone Buddies is run locally by volunteers. All meetings are free and open to the public.
Bone Buddies participated in the 2011 Unbreakable Embrace Campaign to support strong bones.
