BETTER BONES of the Northeast Kingdom, Vermont

     A National Osteoporosis Foundation Support Group      

Thank you for visiting and welcome!  

BETTER BONES of the Northeast Kingdom is a National Osteoporosis Foundation Support Group. We aim to educate the public about osteoporosis prevention and treatment as well as to provide a forum of support for those living with osteoporosis.  We strive to implement our mission through a variety of meetings throughout the year that are free and open to the public.  All are welcome and encouraged to attend.  Whether you have been diagnosed with osteoporosis or osteopenia , have a family member who has been diagnosed or whether you simply want to learn about osteoporosis, we'd love to see you at our meetings.  Please join us!


A diagnosis of osteoporosis can be daunting and over-whelming at times. The hallmark of our group is supporting each other by sharing information and building friendships.


Our focus is to empower each individual with knowledge of osteoporosis prevention strategies and latest treatment recommendations.   Topics such as exercise, nutrition and current treatment options are discussed. Guest speakers will enhance our learning by sharing their expertise.


Nutrition is a key factor in prevention and treatment of osteoporosis.  We share an abundance of calcium-rich recipes.  Check our site frequently for the latest recipe additions for tasty, calcium-rich nutrition.
