Welcome to Arizona Falls Prevention Coalition!
Our Calling is to Prevent Falling™
Arizona Falls Prevention Coalition is designed to provide information, advice, helpful hints and tips to help prevent falls and fall injuries by the elderly in Arizona. By raising awareness of the issue and by providing advice to older adults, we hope to lower the occurrence of elderly falls in Maricopa County and across our state.
The mission of the Arizona Falls Prevention Coalition is to reduce risk of falls in Arizona through education, outreach, evaluation and advocacy.
