Falls Prevention Awareness Day


This year, Falls Prevention Awareness Day is on September 22. Share the two infographics below with your patients and colleagues to increase awareness of falls, the importance of prevention, and the role doctors of podiatric medicine play in this important public health effort. As we age and lose strength in our feet and ankles, the simple acts of standing and walking aren't so simple anymore. Falls prevention is a major concern for the aging population. These resources will help you address falls prevention in your practice.
