One of the biggest threats to the independence of an older adult is a simple slip and fall. Each year, one out of four Americans over age 65 will suffer a fall, and nearly 30,000 die from their injuries. Luckily, many falls can be prevented.

Don't let a bad fall change your life forever. On Friday, Sept. 21, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., join BCH for a morning of fall prevention classes and health screenings presented by our occupational, speech and physical therapists during the county-wide Falls Prevention Week.

When: Friday, Sept. 21, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Where: BCH Medical Pavilion, 1155 Alpine Ave., Boulder
Gene Wilson Conference Room
(Park in the garage on southwest corner of Broadway and Alpine.)
