CMBD Newsletters

The UAB Center for Metabolic Bone Disease began publishing a quarterly newsletter in 1997 to distribute information to all faculty and key administrators at UAB, selected faculty at other institutions including state agencies and pharmaceutical companies (distribution - 2,100). The goal of each newsletter is to highlight recent Center activities in notes from the Director and briefly highlight one of the programs in the Center.
