Falls Prevention Events
Falls prevention events provide a great opportunity to network with community members and health care professionals who share “your calling to prevent falling”. These events are also an excellent chance to broaden your knowledge base, gather resources, raise awareness, and learn more about falls prevention.
Signature events typically occur in September each year – National Falls Prevention Month – which is itself centered around National Falls Prevention Awareness Day. But there are other events, programs and seminars happening at a local level all year round.
