Save the Date: Falls Coalition Event, Sept 17

The Massachusetts Falls Prevention Coalition, of which MHA is a member, is holding its 12th Annual Falls Prevention Awareness Day event on Monday, September 17 at 10 a.m. at the Grand Staircase and Great Hall of the State House.

In Massachusetts, within one year more than one in four community-dwelling older adults will fall, and of those more than one in three will be injured. However, through some very simple lifestyle changes most falls are preventable. Learn how at this event.
