ETMC offers free seminar on fall prevention

ETMC will offer a free KnowledgeFirst Forum on fall prevention Tuesday, Aug. 14, at noon in the ETMC Pavilion in Tyler with Vicky LaMay, outreach education specialist for ETMC EMS, presenting.

“Concerns over falling are particularly troublesome for the elderly,” LaMay said, “as, each year, one in three adults over the age of 65 experiences a fall.” Falls are a leading cause of injury-related deaths among the elderly, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“The good news is falls are largely preventable,” she said. “By following a few simple steps, older adults can reduce their risk for falling and stay active and independent.”

A light lunch will be served. Free parking is available next to the ETMC Pavilion, located at 801 Clinic Drive in Tyler. The gate opens at 11:30 a.m. Please pre-register by calling 800-648-8141 and press 2.
