Introducing the 2019 Healthy Aging, Healthy Bones Top Ideas and Honorable Mentions!


We have been deeply inspired by all of the ideas shared to prevent secondary fractures and keep older adults healthy. Since the launch of the challenge, we’ve been blown away by thoughtfulness and energy of those who came to design together. We received 76 innovative ideas from people living with and close to osteoporosis, designers, and health entrepreneurs. Collectively, you participated by posting, forming teams, and submitting 277 comments, likes, and interactions. Your participation is what makes innovation initiatives a success: Thank you!


We’re thrilled to announce the five Top Ideas listed in alphabetical order:

  • CareXC
