Iowa Bone Club met for the third time this past Friday, 20 October. Ritu Munjal, MD was the program chair and hosted the meeting at PCI in Cedar Rapids.
Great program for those attending. Guest CME topic was hypophosphatasia, which can be a cause of poor bone and increased fracture risk. Low alkaline phosphatase and elevated B6 are the key labs. The condition can be made worse by bisphosphonates, and probably other antiresorptives.
Spring 2018 meeting will be Friday 1 June in Spirit Lake.
