Hello! For my project, I cover how osteoporosis affects athletes, specifically female athletes. The objective I am relating this to an objective in Unit 4: The Skeletal System, that objective being “Explain how bone development is hormonally regulated”, which my project goes in-depth on. The board includes differences in the pelvis for males and females, as well as how PTH and estrogen can negatively affect young female athletes involved in high-impact sports that lower calcium levels and lead to bone resorption, wear and tear on the knee joints, and eventual osteoporosis.
