It’s been led by Dr. Judi Laprade from the University of Toronto and Dr. Caitlin McArthur from GERAS since day one. Once you’ve passed the final quiz (70 per cent), you will be placed on the locator map which will allow the public to find someone who is knowledgeable and trained with working with clients with osteoporosis. You can promote yourself as being Bone Fit™ trained! All Basics registrants get a free t-shirt. All Clinical participants will get a free foam roller. Breakfast and lunch is included in your registration.To register, visit
