UNLV PT Students Assess Fall Risks Among Local Seniors

Posted: September 22, 2013

The UNLV department of physical therapy partnered with the Nevada Goes Fall Free Coalition and provided free screenings to help determine a person’s risk for falls. Led by Dr. Sue Schuerman, PT students administered the screenings and demonstrated simple tests that families can use for assessing the fall risk of their elderly loved ones. KVVU Fox 5 news aired a story about the screenings on September 22 and KTNV Channel 13 news aired a story on September 28.
