Fall Prevention for Older Adults (June 2023)Falls Prevention Logo

Did you know that 1 in 4 older adults suffers a fall each year in the United States and falls are the top cause of injury-related death among our older population. The good news is that falls are NOT a normal part of aging and can be prevented! Tracie Halvorsen, Level 2 Trauma Program Director at St. Mary's Hospital and member of the Falls Free Dane Coalition of Safe Communities, presented about why we should care about falls and what we can do to help prevent a fall. She shared community resources and programs to help you stay upright, independent and healthy. The recording of the presentation is available from WMCF McFarland Cable.
