ETMC will offer a free KnowledgeFirst Forum on how to prevent
falls with ETMC EMS outreach education specialist Vicky LaMay on
Tuesday, August 12, at 10 a.m. in the ETMC Pavilion in Tyler.
"Each year, one in three adults over the age of 65 fall," said
LaMay. "Falls are the leading cause of injury-related deaths for
the elderly. The good news is falls are preventable. Please join me
as I show the simple steps older adults can take to avoid falls and
keep active and independent."
Light refreshments will be served. Free parking is available
next to the ETMC Pavilion, located at 801 Clinic Drive in Tyler.
The gate and building will open at 9:30 a.m. Please pre-register by
calling 866-333-ETMC and pressing 6.
