7th annual Falls Prevention Day, September 23rd, 2014

August 15, 2014

The 7th annual Falls Prevention Awareness Day will be observed on September 23, 2014—the first day of fall. This year’s theme, Strong Today, Falls Free® Tomorrow, seeks to raise awareness about how to prevent fall-related injuries among older adults.

Since Falls Prevention Awareness Day was first observed in 2008, we have grown participation in the event from 11 states to 47 states and the District of Columbia. This year, we hope to expand our reach even further!
