The United States Bone and Joint Initiative (USBJI) is the U.S. National Action Network of the worldwide Bone and Joint Decade, an international collaborative movement sanctioned by the United Nations/World Health Organization. Its mission is to improve the quality of life for people with bone and joint disorders, including osteoporosis, and to advance the understanding, prevention and treatment of these conditions.
As a unique, interdisciplinary coalition of organizations, the USBJI connects thought leaders, health care professionals, educators, researchers, industry professionals, patients and patient advocates. It develops collaborative programs and activities, and creates forums to exchange information, build partnerships, and develop consensus on issues of common concern to its members and society at large.
The USBJI offers a public education program on bone health and osteoporosis called Fit to a T. The program, which is offered in collaboration with the National Bone Health Alliance, and at no cost, includes a ready-made presentation and handouts. More than 450 sessions have been held nationwide, at public libraries, community centers, in the workplace, at medical and senior centers.
