‘Know Your Bones’ event in Parliament House

Out and About

Date Posted : 18 October 2018

On 18 October, I joined Olympic Gold Medallist and World Champion Hurdler, Sally Pearson OAM and former Australian Cricket Captain and World Cup Champion, Michael Clarke at the ‘Know Your Bones’ awareness event in Parliament House.

In Australia a bone is broken every 3.3 minutes due to poor bone health and there will be over 165,000 fractures in 2018 alone. Earlier this year, the Garvan Institute and Osteoporosis Australia launched the Know Your Bones online self-assessment tool, a freely available online tool that helps consumers to understand their own risk of a bone fracture. The online tool can be found here.
