The "STEP-HI Back to a Life in Motion" Hip Fracture Recovery Study

Volunteers Needed For a Hip Fracture Recovery Study

Did You Know? Many hip fracture patients never return to their pre-fracture level of daily functioning and mobility.

We are testing strategies that may improve recovery after a hip fracture.

Who Can Participate?

  • Women with recent hip fracture
  • Aged 65 years or older
  • Willing to participate in a supervised exercise program and/or take a hormone medication, for 6 months.

Transportation provided to all research visits and exercise sessions.

This study is being led by Dr. Sarah Berry, MD MPH & Dr. Douglas Kiel, MD MPH at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Hebrew SeniorLife.
