Osteoporosis to be the Focus of CMHS Seminar on July 29
Oxnard, California, 07/14/2014
Osteoporosis, gradual bone loss that affects 28 million American men and women, will be the focus of a free seminar Community Memorial Health System is holding on Tuesday, July 29.
David Crownover, M.D., a local obstetrician/gynecologist, will conduct the seminar that will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Santa Monica Room of the Courtyard by Marriott, located at 600 E. Esplanade Drive in Oxnard.
Gradual bone loss is part of the aging process and can begin as early as 35 years of age. For people with osteoporosis, the rate of bone loss increases, making hip and spine fractures more likely, with women over 50 at the greatest risk. Dr. Crownover will discuss what people can do to prevent and treat osteoporosis.
Dr. Crownover received his medical degree from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock, Ark. He completed his residency at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis. Dr. Crownover is a member of the Community Memorial Hospital medical staff.
