Apply to be a Research Grants Committee
LAY MEMBER

The National Osteoporosis Society is currently looking to recruit one or more lay members to sit on the Research Grants Committee who will represent the views of people with osteoporosis. The committee aims to reflect a fair balance of experience and scientific disciplines, with views from all members given equal weighting.

The whole experience has been educational and uplifting - the latter due to the realisation that so many researchers are working tirelessly to improve the lives and prospects of people affected by osteoporosis nationwide - Cheryl Dolder

The position is offered on a voluntary unpaid basis, but any travelling expenses will be reimbursed.
