ExERCISE SCIENCE and Sport Studies Associate Professor Elizabeth O’Neill G’00, D.P.E. ’03, is leading a bone health study focused on osteoporosis prevention for women between the ages of 25-45. Osteoporosis, a disease of low bone mass, increases suscepti- bility to fractures. The study is being conducted with assistance from the Springfield College Center for Wellness Education and Research. The goal of the study is to examine the


impact that various modes of exercise have on bone health, body composition and muscular strength; and to analyze whether certain


modes of training are more effective at improving an individual’s bone health to help prevent osteoporosis. With more than two million osteoporotic fractures reported in the United States, osteoporosis impacts an individual’s quality of life and can increase mortality.
