One in three seniors aged 65+ falls each year, and this number increases to one in two by the age of 80.

This year's theme is "Preventing Falls-One Step at a Time." Listen as a panel of researchers, educators, and program leaders from across the country share their innovative partnerships to promote falls prevention awareness and discover new resources that you can use to spread the word.

Explore how to engage professional health care students in falls prevention screening and program delivery; the important role that Geriatric Education Centers and Emergency Medical Services can play in promoting falls prevention; how STEADI is being used to advance health care practice partnerships; and Partnerships and resources to help you evaluate the reach and effectiveness of your efforts.
