MAC hosts Fall Prevention Day Sept. 24

Learn to prevent falls

Falls are the No. 1 cause of injury in older adults, but they are NOT an inevitable part of the aging process! Learn how to prevent falls and take charge of your independence!

Come to MAC on Fall Prevention Day, Friday, Sept. 24, from 9 to 11 a.m., and learn:
• If you are at risk of falling
• What you can do to prevent a fall

Activities will include
• Free fall risk screenings
• Free blood pressure screenings
• Free medication review
• Informational vendors

Those participating in the medication review should bring a list of all their medications, which will be reviewed for prescription drugs that could be related to falling. University of Maryland Eastern Shore Pharmacy students will conduct the medication reviews.

Admission to Fall Prevention Day is free and all ages are welcome.

This event is being sponsored by MAC, along with the University of Maryland Eastern Shore physical therapy and pharmacy departments.
