Description

11th Annual Fall Prevention Awareness Week
Presented by Nevada Goes Falls Free Coalition in collaboration with UNLV School of Integrated Health Sciences.

Balance Screening:
Are you fearful of falling? Have you been stumbling lately? Falls are not a normal part of aging, and most can be prevented.
Empower yourself: Join us for a free balance screening conducted by physical (PT) and occupational therapy (OT) students and learn ways to decrease your risk.

Memory Screening:
Screenings are appropriate for anyone. Whether you are experiencing memory loss right now or are simply concerned about the future, this is an opportunity to have a brief memory screening. 

Participants will receive:

  • A copy of your screening assessments to share with your primary healthcare provider.
  • Information on free community programs that reduce fall risk.
  • Information on clinical research participation resources and tools to improve your health and wellbeing.
