Register for a teacher workshop; you will receive information and activities to help students understand that adolescence is  a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to build strong bones. Students will assess their intake of calcium-rich foods and activity patterns, then plan and practice lifestyle choices that will help them build strong bones.
