Clinical Update Symposium 2017: "Osteoporosis in frail patients"
Saturday January 21th, 2017
MUSEE DU CINQUANTENAIRE | JUBELPARK MUSEUM | BRUSSELS

Dear Colleagues,

I have the privilege to invite you to the Clinical Update Symposium 2017 of the Belgian Bone Club. The program of this 2017 symposium is original and, I think, fascinating ! Indeed, on 21 January, you will learn everything that you need to know about the management of osteoporosis in frail individuals.

Renowned speakers will talk about osteoporosis in cancer patients, in dialysis, in the oldest old, in anorexia and in sarcopenia.

We have also added a new session, namely a review of the most important papers of the year!

Don’t miss the opportunity to discuss all these topics with experts and your colleagues. As usual, there will be ample time for discussion.

I look forward to seeing you on January 21st, 2017.

Jean-Jacques Body,

President.
