Abstract

This paper examines the effects, causes, symptoms, prevention methods, and treatments of osteoporosis. Various forms of literature including journal articles and books were used to research this topic. The information gathered was compacted into a paper that explained and stated the most relevant and proven facts regarding osteoporosis. The information was then compacted further when a pamphlet was made consisting of the most important information. The purpose of the paper was to provide a tool for the college age population to help prevent a common disease that could affect them later in life. The pamphlet was assembled to be a quick reference guide of the most important information and to spread the information more quickly and easily. However, because of technical dilemmas, the pamphlet was unable to be utilized in the manner that was planned but could be used in a clinical situation.
