Jane’s special guest today is Meredith Vieira, a 14-time Emmy Award-winning host, executive producer and anchor. We all know her from “The View,” “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire,” “The Today Show,” and “The Meredith Vieira Show.” Most recently, she served as executive producer on the award-winning documentary “TOWER,” And she also founded and is CEO of “Meredith Vieira Productions,” which develops and produces film, television, and theater. She is joined on the show by the renowned specialist, Dr. Susan Bukata from UCLA Health, Department of Orthopedics, and a member of the University of California, Los Angeles faculty. Dr. Bukata has a significant research interest in bone fragility and bone healing and on the National Osteoporosis Foundation Board of Trustees. Together they talk about Osteoporosis, a disease that affects more than 8 million women over the age of 50 in the U.S. alone. It is not, however, as some erroneously believe, an inevitable sign of aging. But how exactly does it affect our bones and who is most at risk? Learn Meredith’s personal connection to Osteoporosis, why she is making bone health a priority, and what she herself is doing to prevent its onset. The Doctor talks about the warning signals to look for, such as what fractures can signify, appropriate testing and treatment options, and suggested lifestyle changes to protect our bones and keep them Better Than Before for years to come.
