Dear Colleague,

It is privilege to conduct the first body composition course in India. This is a nascent and developing field, and is predicted to have a tremendous impact on public health due to the rising global burden of obesity. The second course is to understand the fine nuances of clinical densitometry and osteoporosis.

The objective is to explain the value of bone densitometry for diagnosis of osteoporosis, fracture risk estimation and monitoring, describe principles for interpreting central DXA scans, explain fracture risk assessment combing BMD with clinical risk factor(WHO fracture risk model) evaluate non-central DXA technologies for predicting fracture risk, recognize errors in DXA reporting.

Who will benefit from this course? Dedicated Clinicians with an interest in bone and metabolic health and you may be from any of the following specialities: Gynaecologist, Oncologist, Gastroenterologists, Rheumatologists, Endocrinologist, Physician, General Practitioners, Pulmonologists, Orthopedics, Bariatric Surgeons and Nutritionists.

The course will be conducted by experts working in the fields of osteoporosis .I urge you to make of this opportunity to take time off your busy clinical schedule to update and interact. This course will be accredited with Credit Points by Medical Council of AP.

The three day academic bonanza is an event not to be missed.

Dear Meeta
A very well planned program with excellent topics and well chosen faculty.
To the best of my knowledge, such in-depth program has not been conducted earlier, and the IMS members who are very committed to women's health issues will benefit immensely. I hope you can come up with one more mini book covering the workshop topics.
I wish you all the best in this endeavour.
Warm wishes
Dr. Rashmi
