      1. Hey! Yes, so it opens tomorrow, if you’re on the waitlist you’ll get an email to enroll. It’s over at — it’s a self-paced, lifetime access course, so you can access it whenever after enrolling. I just open it a few times a year right now for a few reasons. It’ll be open at 7am tomorrow through June 5th for enrollment, but like I said when you’re in it — it never goes away. I hope you’ll join us!

      1. Hey Julie! In the comment below I mentioned that it’s usually 5 units short acting with each meal, and titrated from there, but I can do another bit about that!

    1. Hi Liz,
      LOVE YOUR VIDEOS! Would you be able to do a video on primary care treatment of osteoporosis/osteopenia of men and women? Would really appreciate your input. Thank you!!
