An initiative of the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF).
We believe Patient testimonies are the most powerful way to show the enormous impact of fractures due to osteoporosis on daily life. The IOF is launching the Give Patients a Voice video contest in cooperation with its member societies worldwide including the Irish Osteoporosis Society.
You can now vote for the 1-minute patient video testimonials. Sinead Leahy and her daughter tell their story in the IOS entry. We would love if you could vote for Sinead to highlight her story about how osteoporosis affects her and her family.
Vote for your video in this link: https://bit.ly/2TW9sG1
Each person will be able to vote only once for each of the videos. The platform is super simple to use and everyone can see how many votes each video has.
The videos order is set randomly, so it changes every time you open the link, giving all the participants the opportunity to appear on the top of the list!
Please feel free to share the link with your family and friends thru email or social media!
The voting will close on December 15th at 23:59 (GMT +1 – Paris Time).
IOF will also share the link in all of our social media accounts in case you would like to share it!
