Age On! A Series on Growing Older, Better
Monday, May 14, 2012 - 2:00pm

In the last of the 2012 Age On! Series of free Academy Evening talks in Menasha, WI, Dr. Neil Binkley discusses new research involving vitamin D and osteoporosis. Binkley, who earned his medical degree from the University of Wisconsin and subsequently received training in internal medicine at the Marshfield Clinic, returned to UW-Madison after several year of private practice and completed a geriatrics fellowship. He is an associate professor in the Divisions of Geriatrics and Endocrinology at UW, where he is also director of the Osteoporosis Clinical Center and Research Program and associate director of the UW Institute on Aging. He is a past president of the International Society for Clinical Densitometry.  His current research involves optimizing evaluation of vitamin D status, exploring racial/ethnic differences in response to vitamin D supplementation, evaluation of functional assessment in older adults and the importance of sarcopenia, or the degenerative loss of skeletal muscle mass, in fracture risk. This talk was recorded on May 14, 2012, at the UW–Fox Valley Communication Arts Center–James W. Perry Hall.
