Anlene organises one-day event to raise awareness against disease

Adult milk powder brand Anlene is hosting a Move for Bones event this weekend to urge women of the UAE to join the fight against osteoporosis.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), osteoporosis ranks second only to cardiovascular disease as the world's leading health care problem and one in three women in the Middle East is at risk of developing the disease.

The all-day event, which takes place on Friday 27 April in The Dubai Mall’s Star Atrium, will feature workshops on pilates, walking and Zumba, bone scanning, nutritional consultation and the Anlene Bone Tunnel to help prevent osteoporosis and build stronger bones.

World Osteoporosis Day is observed annually on 20 October and launches a year-long campaign dedicated to raising global awareness of the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis and metabolic bone disease
