September 20, 2021

Recent data shows that falls among older adults have increased since the COVID-19 pandemic due to social isolation and decreased physical activity. Falls can significantly impact older adults’ ability to live independently. Public health evidence-based interventions are key in reducing and preventing falls. TFAH’s October AFPHS training featured Dr. Robin Lee, Team Lead, Division of Injury Prevention at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Injury Prevention & Control. Dr. Lee highlighted strategies for fall prevention, with a specific focus on the Stopping Elderly Accidents, Deaths & Injuries programs.
