Falls Prevention Day Kicks Off Week Dedicated to Prevention Awareness:
Falls Prevention Day/Week creates an opportunity to educate, promote and implement activities related to falls prevention and mobility issues with patients.

There are an abundance of resources out there that can educate your community on this important focus area. Check out IHC's Fall Prevention Toolkit of Resources
and the Iowa of Department of Public Health's Falls Prevention Home page
