National Fall Prevention Day

Did you know that every 15-seconds, an older adult is seen in an emergency room for a fall related injury? It’s a scary thought, but falls are the leading cause of both fatal and nonfatal injuries for those aged 65 and over. The Hazleton Health and Wellness Center is inviting older adults to take part in an educational presentation, all about common fall risk factors. The Fall Prevention Awareness Fair is this Saturday, September 22 at the Hazleton Health and Wellness Center from 10am-2pm. Saturday is also National Fall Prevention Day. To Pre-register call 501-6204.
