Endocrine Society and Hormone Foundation call for increased research

sity is lower in men who are hypogonadal or have a low level of male sex hormones," explained Dr. Means.

Among its key points, the Surgeon General's report calls upon various stakeholders such as voluntary health organizations, government, industry, and professional associations such as The Endocrine Society and The Hormone Foundation, to take steps to promote bone health. The Hormone Foundation--the patient education affiliate of The Endocrine Society--has developed patient education materials on several areas of endocrinology, including osteoporosis. Most recently, the Foundation released a series of bilingual (English and Spanish) fact sheets titled "Hormones and You," one of which is on osteoporosis. This fact sheet and other useful information on osteoporosis are available on The Hormone Foundation's Web site at www.hormone.org. "The best way to help patients avoid fractures as they age is to educate them about their bone health. The Hormone Foundation is dedicated to providing patients--both directly and through their doctors--with information that can help them learn about prevention and treatment options," explained Dr. Robert Jaffe, President of The Hormone Foundation. "In the future, we will also be looking for ways to partner with other organizations to expand our efforts on this important issue."
