Lecture Series:

Insights into Osteoporosis

Wednesday, June 8th, 5:30pm

Presenters: Janes Burgess, MD Neurosurgery, Sonia Manocha, MD Rheumatology, Daniel Altman, MD Orthopedic Surgery

Osteoporosis is one of the most treatable diseases in the elderly. It is also one of the most neglected. As a consequence, bone fractures abound in most elderly populations. Important bones such as the femurs and spinal vertebrae are particularly prey to this disease given the natural stress they operate under. Three physicians will describe the disease, its consequences, and its treatment - and why it's important to know your DEXA score.

Lecture is free and open, however registration is required. To register, email or call 412-268-7489. Members may register online.

Genealogy: Find Your Roots by Unearthing Your Family's Past

As Pearl S. Buck once mused, “If you want to understand today, you have to search yesterday.” Let’s get together & help each other make that happen! We are attempting to create a special interest group in the area of genealogy. We propose to meet monthly for a couple of hours in the Pennsylvania Department on the 3rd Floor of the Carnegie Library Main Branch on Forbes Avenue, Oakland. They have a great staff there that are always available to answer questions, provide genealogical research guidance, and assist in finding materials. It’s the closest thing to a real life “time tunnel” that we have in the Pittsburgh area, & you’ll also get a history lesson along the way. You should come up with a slew of amazing discoveries & may unravel some confounding mysteries, as well. To sign up, please send an email to Bob Brown at
