Sue Doyle (Royal Osteoporosis Society speaker) with Vesna Levi
“Break a leg” might be a traditional saying in the theatre world – but it’s not something to wish for in real life.

Crosby’s Soroptimists welcomed Sue Doyle, a volunteer speaker with the Royal Osteoporosis Society, to give them the facts about bone health, diagnosis and treatment.

Sue spoke about bone structure, how it can change through life and exactly what osteoporosis is. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle for strong bones was her central theme.

The Royal Osteoporosis Society is a charity dedicated to campaigning for the 3.5 million people in the UK who have this condition. It has a network of support groups and a helpline staffed by specialist nurses to ensure that accurate information makes a real difference to people’s lives.

Vesna Levi (SI Crosby Programme Action Officer) said, “Sue’s talk really captured our members’ interest. A lively question-and-answer session followed, which could have gone on far longer had we not needed to call a halt. Clearly osteoporosis is a topic that has touched the lives of many of our members.

“However, as Sue is a member of Soroptimist International Wigan, maybe she was not surprised at the spirited response from her Crosby sisters!”
