March 4, 2022 — American Bone Health is proud to welcome Nancy King Reame, MSN, PhD, FAAN, to its Medical and Scientific Advisory Board. Dr. Reame is the Mary Dickey Lindsay Professor Emerita of Nursing at Columbia University. Although retired, she remains a faculty affiliate of Columbia’s Center for the Study of Social Differences and the Masters’ Program in Bioethics.
Trained in reproductive neuroendocrinology at the University of Michigan, Dr. Reame has conducted more than 25 years of federally funded and industry-sponsored research in women’s health, first at the University of Michigan and then at Columbia. Dedicated to improving the health of aging women, she is a certified menopause practitioner and former board member of the North American Menopause Society. Her honors include election to the National Academy of Medicine, the American Academy of Nursing, and the New York Academy of Medicine. Throughout her career, and now as an osteoporosis patient herself, Dr. Reame has been an active volunteer in clinical research to gain important perspectives on the research experience.
“Dr. Nancy Reame brings not only impressive credentials but also valuable experience to the American Bone Heath Medical and Scientific Advisory Board as a nurse, as a menopause expert, and as a person dealing with osteoporosis herself,” said Cheryl Hostinak, executive director of American Bone Heath. “American Bone Health looks forward to benefiting from Dr. Reame’s contributions and perspective as we seek to share with the public and the scientific community the results of our programming.”
The MSAB is a vital resource for American Bone Health, helping ensure that the community-based organization provides up-to-date evidence-based information to help people build and maintain strong, healthy bones for life.
