Speaking Of Bones Presented by Osteoporosis Canada
Monday, November 30 at 2:00 pm
Our bones are constantly renewed through a natural process in which new bone cells replace old bone cells. As we age, however, this process becomes less efficient and we begin to gradually lose bone tissue. According to the 2009 Canadian Health Survey, the Public Health Agency of Canada estimated that approximately 1.5 million Canadians aged 40 years and over (10%) have osteoporosis. Of these people, women were four times more likely to report having osteoporosis than men. Women are more at risk of developing osteoporosis than men because they start with lower bone density and they lose bone mass more quickly as they age. Do you know the risks of Osteoporosis?
Join us on Monday, November 30 at 2:00pm. Topics discussed will be:
What osteoporosis is
Are you at risk
How osteoporosis is diagnosed
What you can do to maintain healthy bones
The role of exercise, nutrition and lifestyle choices
Convention on the Rights of Older Persons Webinar
Wednesday, December 2, 2020 11:00am - 12:30pm
The United Nations Charter, recognizes the “fundamental human rights, and the dignity and worth of the human person”. Over the years, special UN Conventions, addressing the rights of Women, Children, Indigenous Persons and Persons with Disabilities, have been developed and adopted. To this day, there is still no Convention uplifting the rights of Older People, despite the hard work and persistent calls for it by numerous organizations around the world and in Canada.
EAPO in partnership with CNPEA invite you to join our upcoming webinar to delve into:
How pervasive ageism prevents advancements in the protection of older people’s rights and well-being
What has been done to date and where we are now, at the International and Canadian levels
Impact of COVID-19 on Human Rights and the mistreatment of older adults
What a UN Convention would mean for YOU at an individual or community level.
This presentation will provide an informative overview about what a UN Convention means and the work being done, followed by an informal panel discussion.
Participants will learn from Canadian speakers involved in various initiatives across the world. From the international scope, to the provincial level impact, to front line realities, our panelists will discuss the very real challenges they face, the strategies they employ, and why it is crucial for Canada to support and abide by a Convention for the Rights of Older Persons.
