    Sponsored by Sunsweet Growers

    Did you know that men have a higher risk of developing an osteoporotic fracture than they do of developing prostate cancer?* Osteoporosis is a disease often overlooked in the male population, but it is just as important for men as it is for females. Join a prominent PhD/RD researcher as she unveils new clinical trial findings looking at the effect of prunes on bone health in men, including the positive effect of prunes on circumference of the tibia (marker of bone health). We will also examine new research on different conditions affecting male bone health, including spinal cord injury and space travel for astronauts, and the effect of prunes to mitigate the bone loss in those conditions.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Identify the risk of osteoporosis in men.
    2. Describe the new research findings looking at the effect of prunes on bone health in men.
    3. Identify the practical application and specifics around including prunes in the diet to help promote bone health.
