Synopsis: Faces of Osteoporosis was a silver-medal winner at the 16th Annual National Mature Media Awards.

"This important book documents the stories of people who are living with osteoporosis. The book will help you understand the silent and devastating impact of the disease. I hope that you will learn from these brave individuals who share their stories with you. We must educate and empower people through knowledge. Together, I hope we can eliminate osteoporosis as a major health problem. -- From the Foreword by Dianne Feinstein, United States Senator

Renowned photographer Amelia Davis turns her lens on those living with osteoporotic disease in her fascinating new book, Faces of Osteoporosis. With this beautifully illustrated work, Ms. Davis communicates the message that osteoporosis affects both women and men across the life span, is both preventable and treatable, and should not be considered part of normal aging. In the United States alone there are almost 35 million people living with the disease and that number continues to grow.

Here are the inspirational stories of women, men, and even children who live with osteoporosis. Treatments, therapies, and diets are discussed and shared, from the latest advances in prescription medication to the healing power of exercise.

The book's beautiful photographs and candid personal stories will have a positive affect on the way people view individuals with osteoporosis, and serve as a touchstone for those living with this condition. It smashes the stereotype of osteoporosis as a disease of older women, showing that the disease has myriad faces, not just one."

About the Author: A San Francisco native, Amelia Davis's photography has been featured in fine art galleries, universities, and medical symposia, and been published in literary and art magazines internationally. She is the author and photographer of the award-winning The First Look, a photographic essay on breast cancer survivors who opted for mastectomy.

Her second critically acclaimed book, My Story: A Photographic Essay on Life with Multiple Sclerosis was a very personal look in words and pictures at multiple sclerosis. Amelia herself was diagnosed with MS in 1998.
