Iowa Bone Club 2020 will meet at Allen College in Waterloo, IA on Friday 24 April. This is the only meeting in Iowa each year which is dedicated solely to optimizing Bone Health. We prefer to prevent unnecessary fractures.
We aim primarily at teaching healthcare professionals of all types about the latest advances in caring for bone health. NPs, PAs, DNPs, RNs, LPNs, CMAs, Meds, DOs are all included. Often the lecturers learn as much as the students. CME and CEU credits will be available.
This year’s meeting will include a presentation about using anabolic medications to grow bones first, then preserve the gains. We will discuss how optimizing bone quality before total joint replacement or spinal fusion results in faster healing and better results. We will learn how to minimize the ill effects of common diseases like diabetes on bone health.
As always, we will have a roundtable for staff dealing with insurance companies about medication pre-authorizations. Also our roundtable among providers sharing thoughts about difficult cases.
