Support groups are a great way to learn more about osteoporosis and how to live with the disease directly from those in similar situations. Use our directory below to find a support group in your area. If we don’t have a support group in your area and you’re interested in starting one, please review and complete the NOF Online Support Group Application or visit our Online Support Community hosted by Inspire.
