Over 20 minutes in length. Description: Healthy bones hold the key to remaining mobile, engaged and independent in life. In this special, Dr. Lani Simpson, an expert in bone health and osteoporosis, instills hope and leads viewers in understanding how to take charge of their bone health and retain their independence.
