Fall Prevention in the Fall

TongRo Images

The Broome County Health Department and associate agencies are promoting the fall season as a good time to learn to prevent falls by finding out techniques to better balance and to improve safety around the home .  Supervising Public Health Educator Mary McFadden, speaking on the September 22nd edition of “The Southern Tier Close Up,” said falls are the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries in older adults with fractures, including hip fractures, close behind.  While some programs have already started, McFadden says other programs are on-going and another round of classes will begin in upcoming months.  More information can be found by going to the health department section of the Broome County website: www.gobroomecounty.com or by contacting McFadden at www.mmcfadden@co.broome.ny.us.
