Last semester, the response to this class was overwhelming and we hated to turn people away. Here is another opportunity to participate in this two hour program that helps so many.

Please make time to attend this free presentation.  Did you know that 1 in 4 Americans aged 65+ falls every year? Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries for older Americans.  Those who attend this session will be able to participate in a personal balance assessment to be done by a physical therapist from Benchmark Physical Therapy.

Participants will also learn practical lifestyle adjustments, evidence-based programs, and community partnerships that can reduce the number of falls among seniors.

Our presenter is Cynthia Rockey L.C.S.W., M.Ed,  Health Promotion Manager from E. Tennessee Area Agency on Aging & Disability
