Senior Fall Prevention

Falls are the leading cause of injury and accidental death in adults older than 65. The USF Health Byrd Alzheimer’s Institute recently held a “Senior Safety and Falls Prevention Day,” where professionals offered seniors safety tips, health screenings and even check-ups of their cars. We take you there on University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
