Community and health professionals who work with the elderly are invited to attend this free two-day event hosted by Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine, Marshall University School of Pharmacy, West Virginia Bureau of Senior Services and Cabell Huntington Hospital. The symposium covers a variety of topics related to falls prevention and senior health.
Falls prevention remains one of the most important topics in geriatric medicine. Individuals 65 and older account for 75% of the fall-related deaths that occur annually. Many of the known risk factors for falling can be mitigated or completely eliminated, so education in this area is critically important.
