The National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF) is the leading nonprofit, voluntary health organization dedicated to promoting lifelong bone health in order to reduce the widespread prevalence of osteoporosis and associated fractures, while working to find a cure for the disease through programs of research, education and advocacy.
NOF’s mission is to prevent osteoporosis, to promote lifelong bone health, to help improve the lives of those affected by osteoporosis and related fractures, and to find a cure.
Established in 1984, the National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF) is the nation’s leading voluntary health organization solely dedicated to osteoporosis and bone health.
NOF is committed to achieving our mission through programs of awareness, education and training, advocacy and research.
In order to accomplish our mission – to prevent osteoporosis, to promote lifelong bone health, to help improve the lives of those affected by osteoporosis and related fractures, and to find a cure – NOF accepts support from a wide breadth of diversified sources, including individuals, foundations, government sources and corporations.
While some of these funds may be restricted to specific projects, NOF maintains its independence and objectivity in accordance with the National Health Council’s guiding principles. NOF does not endorse any particular product, service or point of view, but does inform the public about all FDA-approved therapies, as well as the availability of other appropriate products and services as part of its educational responsibility to the public and healthcare professionals.
Scientific members of NOF’s Board of Trustees, as well as other leading experts in the field of osteoporosis, are routinely consulted to provide a fair and balanced perspective regarding written materials and educational programming.
