Why Falls Matter and How to Prevent Them
September 5 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
The Falls Prevention Coalition of Idaho (FPC-ID) is presenting the first seminar in the 2023 Falls Prevention Awareness Month (FPAM) seminar series. Why Falls Matter and How to prevent Them is a free online seminar that discusses medication, nutrition, physical activity, and environmental factors that can increase a person’s risk of falling. Most importantly, strategies to reduce these risks are provided.
The goal is to bring awareness and prevention strategies to individuals, families, caregivers, communities, and civic leaders, of the incidence, outcomes, and costs of falls. With this knowledge, simple strategies can be implemented to reduce falls risk in public and private spaces, and individuals will be empowered to make decisions that reduce their risk of falling. This seminar is designed for community members who are interested in healthy aging and the impact of falls on public health.
