This event will focus on falls prevention strategies for African American adults 60+.

Falls among older adults are the #1 cause of injury death in the state of Wisconsin. Falls are not a normal part of aging and can be prevented. If you have experienced a fall or are fearful of falling, join us for lunch and a panel discussion to learn how to prevent falls and stay safe, upright and independent. In partnership with Falls Free Dane, a Safe Communities Coalition, and NewBridge Madison.

To register, contact Deana Wright at 608-512-0000 x2007.
