Monday, Sept. 17: Falls Prevention Day at the State House

The Massachusetts Falls Prevention Coalition, of which MHA is a member, is holding the 12th Annual Fall Prevention Awareness Day event at the State House on Monday, September 17. The event is co-sponsored by the American Physical Therapy Association of Massachusetts and Benchmark Senior Living. In Massachusetts, within one year, more than one in four community-dwelling older adults will fall and of those who fall, over one in three will be injured. However, through some very simple lifestyle changes most falls are preventable. Learn how at this event. For more information about the event, please contact Liz Harnois, Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts at lharnois@biama.org or (508) 475-0032, ext. 14.
