OWH launched the Best Bones Forever! campaign in 2009 with the goal of improving bone health among adolescent girls by encouraging them to increase their calcium and vitamin D consumption and physical activity. After four successful years, OWH has made the strategic decision to bring their involvement in the Best Bones Forever! campaign to a close. OWH is looking for one organization to continue the campaign by promoting campaign messages nationally through an exclusive license to the campaign marks.

  • established presence as a leader in bone health in communities around the United States;
  • mission related to improving bone health among the public;
