BoneBuilders of RI

Bone Builders is an innovative community-based program designed to promote bone health and overall wellbeing for both men and women. The program is currently fully supported by The Village at Waterman Lake, whose co-owner, Diane Caruso, has been a Bone Builder volunteer, class leader and organizer for more than ten years. A BoneBuilder Master Trainer, Diane is so inspired by the results of BoneBuilders that several years ago she led trainings at The Village in order that we might offer classes to all Village residents. She has since expanded her vision, committing both time and resources to bringing the benefits of the BoneBuilders to people throughout the state of Rhode Island.

Diane’s direction and encouragement has enabled The Village to successfully offer complimentary Bone Builders classes to the general public for more than three years. The Tuesday and Thursday morning class has been attended by dozens of participants, each experiencing various benefits, including better mobility, improved posture, weight loss, reduction in medications, and improved general well-being.

You may have heard of Bone Builders. Perhaps you’ve seen it featured on news media. Dr. Miriam Nelson, whose intense research the program is based upon, has appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show, the Today Show, Good Morning America, CNN, Fresh Air, and the Discovery Channel. She has written a number of international best-selling books including Strong Women Strong Bones, Strong Women and Men Beat Arthritis, and others.
