Free program to help seniors prevent falls

Posted: Updated:

St. Mary's Trauma Service is hosting a program for seniors in the hopes of preventing slips, trips, and falls. It's called "Standing Together to Prevent Falls."

Falls are the leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries in older people, and they're one of the main reasons seniors go to the hospital. The goal is teaching nutrition for energy and physical activity for strength.

When: Wednesday, Dec. 19th / 10 am – 12pm

Where: 1400 professional blvd. / Evansville, IN 47715 / Conference room B

The program is free, but space is limited.  There is still room.  Call 485-6827 to sign up.
