Event Details

Leaves Are Supposed to Fall—People Aren’t.

 This program is brought to you courtesy of Nassau Libraries Health Share. 

Every second of the day in the United States, an older adult falls—making falls the leading cause of injury and deaths from injury among older Americans. Falls and fall injuries are more common than strokes and can result in health problems that are just as serious.  Falls is also the number one reason older adults lose their independence.  Falls can be life-changing, but they are not inevitable.  Taking some simple steps to prevent falls can help you or those you love stay active, confident and independent.

This program uses the Zoom meeting platform, which can be viewed on a PC, Mac, Smartphone or tablet (using the Zoom Cloud Meeting App). The Zoom login information will be emailed to you the day before the program.
