IOWA DEPARTMENT OF AGING RECEIVES GRANT
FOR FALL PREVENTION

The Iowa Department on Aging has received a federal grant to prevent falls by at-risk Iowans.

According to the Iowa Department of Public Health, unintentional falls are the leading cause of injury-related emergency room visits, hospitalizations and deaths for Iowans aged 65 or older.

“Increasing the variety and availability of evidenced-based fall prevention programs throughout the state is key to reducing the number of fall related injuries” said Iowa Department on Aging Director Donna Harvey. “Thanks to this project, the State will establish a responsive, integrated fall prevention network that enables more at-risk Iowans to participate in falls prevention programs and learn strategies to decrease their chances of falling.”

We hope you will strongly consider becoming engaged in this effort. It is an investment in Iowa’s future; if we can educate people today, we can prevent fall-related injuries and deaths in the years to come.

Please feel free to share this Master Trainer Course Application with others in your professional network as appropriate.
