The Presidents of IOF and ANZBMS along with the Local Organising Committee are pleased to invite you to participate in the IOF Regionals - 2nd Asia-Pacific Osteoporosis and Bone Meeting being held in conjunction with the ANZBMS Annual Scientific Meeting and JSBMR in September 4-8, 2011.

The Asia-Pacific region is the largest growth market in the world in the bone field. As revealed by the IOF Asian Audit in 2009, it is anticipated that by 2050 more than 50% of all osteoporotic fractures will occur in Asia. 

With an active Asia-Pacific Office and 28 member societies from the Region,  IOF Regionals provide the first and only  annual opportunity for a truly Regional Meeting to occur in the Asia-Pacific Region.  IOF Meetings focus on clinical treatment of osteoporosis as well as cutting edge science in the field. ANZBMS meetings are the peak Bone and Mineral professional events in the Australian and New Zealand region and JSBMR serves the entire Japanese community with annual scientific meetings in the area of bone and mineral research.

The Meeting format includes plenary sessions, abstract presentations, poster presentations and viewing, Meet-the-Expert sessions, satellite symposia, award presentations, workshops and several social events.
