Join Dr. Michael Ormsbee, a Professor and Graduate Program Director in the Department of Nutrition & Integrative Physiology as well as the Associate Director of the Institute of Sports Sciences & Medicine at Florida State University, as he discusses the updates on normal weight obesity and body composition index using DXA. Webinar awards 1 CDR CPEU credit. Objectives: Conceptualize the concept of normal weight obesity in athletes and how DXA is used to identify this issue 2. Discuss the use of DXA to measure body composition index in order to identify improvements in body composition 3. Identify how dietary intake and training may assist in improving body composition index and normal weight obesity (57:12)

This webinar will address the use of DXA for Body Composition Analysis, in particular that of fat mass and fat compartments and lean mass. We will address clinical uses for DXA body composition including the assessment of sarcopenia, metabolic syndrome and cachexia (cancer, cardiac, pulmonary, etc.) We will look at some case studies of body composition analysis used to follow clinical progression of disease. Finally we will also briefly address the use of body composition analysis in the pediatric/adolescent population. Speaker: Dr. Vyvyane Loh, CEO & Medical Director, Transform Alliance for Health, Newton, Massachusetts, USA

The National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF) contracted with the independent actuarial firm Milliman to analyze the state-by-state economic and clinical impact of osteoporotic fractures suffered by Americans insured by Medicare. These reports provide the latest and most detailed state-level review of the incidence of osteoporotic fractures, their health care impact and associated Medicare costs. They are available for advocacy use to raise awareness and encourage policy makers to take action to improve bone health. The 50 individual state reports can be accessed by clicking on your state below. Also available is an accompanying national report and supplement which update the 2019 Milliman report commissioned by NOF using a larger data source and more recent data.
