Date:5/21/2009

Congress Urged to Support Bill for Bone Health Promotion and Research

WASHINGTON, May 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF) in conjunction with the National Coalition for Osteoporosis and Related Bone Diseases held a briefing on Capitol Hill today to engage Congress in an action plan for making bone health a national priority and encourage lawmakers to sign on to the "Bone Health Promotion and Research Act."

The proposed legislation would create a National Bone Health Program to enhance the activities of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and augment educational activities on bone health at the national and state levels; establish an Osteoporosis and Related Bone Disease Advisory Committee to advise the CDC and the National Institutes of Health (NIH); expand and intensify research activities of the NIH on osteoporosis and related bone diseases; and authorize grants and cooperative agreements to facilitate the collection, analysis and reporting of data regarding osteoporosis.

Representatives Shelley Berkley (D-1st-NV) and Michael C. Burgess (R-26th-TX) provided remarks for the briefing.

"Promoting good bone health and increasing fracture prevention efforts among older Americans are two ways we can help bring the growth in healthcare spending down to sustainable levels," said Congresswoman Berkley. "The 'Bone Health Promotion and Research Act' and the 'Medicare Fracture Prevention and Osteoporosis Testing Act' will help us meet this goal and I will be working with my colleagues in Congress and the healthcare community to build support for the enactment of these important bills."

"As a doctor for over 25 years serving the people of Texas, I know the importance of health education and disease prevention in improving the lives of Americans," said Congressman Burgess. "That's why we are proud to introduce this comprehensive bill
