The CNS membership includes independent, not-for-profit osteoporosis societies or organizations, including health advocacy organizations, which carry out medical activities, generate public awareness and policy change, and provide a variety of services to people with musculoskeletal diseases. The CNS’ Patient Societies Subcommittee represents those member societies' which are specifically devoted to advocacy and patient support. 

IOF welcomes applications to join the CNS from societies and organizations worldwide. Read about CNS benefits and how your organization can apply for membership.
