Description

Trauma Injury Prevention Coordinator at Vassar Hospital Jill Bubel visits RadioRotary to promote the Lower Hudson Valley Fall Prevention Week, a series of online events devoted to teaching older persons how to avoid those often traumatic and sometimes deadly falls, the most common cause of serious injury or mortality in persons over 60. The events are sponsored by the offices for the aging of the counties in the lower Hudson Valley and include a balance class based on the Kovacs exercises, classes in Tai Chi, information about making homes safer, and much more. Programs for the week include materials for fall prevention from Rebuilding Together, students from Stoney Brook, and Northwell Health.
