Falls: The Avoidable Epidemic

Class/Workshop, Health & Wellness/Nutrition, Seniors

Falls are not just little accidents and falling is not an inevitable result of aging. Falls are preventable. Learn about the consequences of falling and what you, a spouse or a loved one can do to avoid falls and those nasty consequences.
