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.
The 2020 symposium has been postponed. Please check back for additional information.
