Plenary lectures announced for world's largest osteoporosis congress
Date:9/21/2007

Fourteen of the worlds leading osteoporosis experts will present plenary lectures at the 2008 IOF World Congress on Osteoporosis (IOF WCO) in Bangkok, Thailand.

We have selected these speakers for their ability to present the latest science in a format that will be useful for the thousands of health care professionals attending the IOF World Congress on Osteoporosis, noted Professor Cyrus Cooper, Chairman, IOF Committee of Scientific Advisors and Chairman, IOF World Congress on Osteoporosis 2008 Scientific Committee.

The IOF WCO, which will be held from December 3-7, 2008, is the worlds largest scientific congress devoted specifically to osteoporosis.

IOF decided to hold this important event in Asia partly because of the enormous projected growth in osteoporosis in the region," noted Professor Cooper, who pointed out that in 2050 one out of every two osteoporotic fractures will occur in Asia. "Asia also has a large number of committed health care professionals who want to meet with their colleagues from around the world to learn the latest in diagnostics and treatment."
