On September 22, 2017, the National Council on Aging will celebrate the 10th annual National Falls Prevention Awareness Day. At WESTMED, we observe Falls Prevention Awareness Week from September 22-28. This year’s theme is “10 Years Standing Together to Prevent Falls in 2017”.

WESTMED’s Physical Therapy Department will be performing free fall risk assessments in the lobby at each of the sites listed below from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The assessment will take less than five minutes.
