Do you have concerns about falling?

"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.
