National Osteoporosis Foundation Support Community

About the NOF Support Community

The National Osteoporosis Foundation works to ensure that everyone affected by osteoporosis has a place to turn for support. As a result, NOF and Inspire partnered to create a safe and secure online osteoporosis support community. The NOF Support Community offers a place to meet others, ask questions and share information about osteoporosis and bone health through the Internet. We hope you'll enjoy the time you spend here.

Please note that information on the NOF Support Community is not intended to provide medical advice and should NOT be relied upon for any particular diagnosis, treatment or care. Members are encouraged to speak with their healthcare providers for medical and treatment advice. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the community's DOs and DON'Ts, which are clearly outlined under Inspire's Community Guidelines.

The NOF Support Community is one of multiple online outlets that provide NOF services to the public. While this community is a place to find support and share information, remains the primary online source for the latest evidence-based information about bone health and osteoporosis. NOF continually updates its website with current news, announcements and resources as they become available. Individuals can also contact NOF to request information by calling: 1 (800) 231-4222.

NOF is committed to providing a breadth of information and resources ranging from lifestyle behaviors to treatment options to help patients, interested consumers and health professionals throughout the country make informed decisions about bone health and osteoporosis. NOF relies on evidence-based information before taking any positions or making any recommendations to the public.

NOF Support Community Volunteer Group Leaders

Volunteer group leaders, NOF staff and Inspire staff all play an important role in monitoring the NOF Support Community. The three groups work together to offer this service to the public and NOF and Inspire appreciate the tremendous contributions the volunteer group leaders make to the community. Below is a brief overview of the volunteer group leader's role:

  • Group leaders visit the NOF Support Community on a regular basis to monitor content posted on the community.
  • Group leaders help the community by participating in discussions and making community members aware of helpful resources and other information that might be useful.
  • Group leaders communicate with NOF and Inspire on a regular basis to keep everyone working together to better serve the needs of the community.
  • Group leaders are expected to notify NOF and Inspire immediately regarding any problems on the community that need to be addressed.
