Falls Prevention Awareness Day (FPAD) 2019

The annual Falls Prevention Awareness Day (FPAD) — September 23, 2019 — raises awareness about how to prevent fall-related injuries among older adults. National, state, and local partners collaborate to educate others about the impact of falls, share fall prevention strategies, and advocate for the expansion of evidence-based community fall prevention programs. National and state efforts are published in NCOA’s annual FPAD Impact Report. If you would like to learn more about fall prevention efforts in your state, please contact your State Falls Prevention Coalition lead.

Visit the National Council on Aging website for more resources to engage in FPAD!
