Fall Prevention Awareness Day in San Marcos


Did you know that every 15 seconds, an older adult is treated in an emergency department for a fall? The good news is that falls are largely preventable! Learn how to take steps to prevent falls! On Monday, Sept. 23 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. join the Foundation, the City of San Marcos and County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency on Fall Prevention Awareness Day to learn how you can take steps to prevent falls. Join us for an opportunity to hear from expert speakers on fall prevention, meet with local exhibitors and receive free screenings (e.g., balance screening, auditory screening and more). Light refreshments will be provided, but if you would also like to have lunch at the San Marcos Senior Activity Center, please make sure to RSVP the day before (60+ suggested $4 donation; under 60 $5 fee).
