September is Fall Prevention Month

AAHI Community,

Did you know that falls are the number one cause of injury-related emergency room visits and hospital admissions for Marylanders over the age of 65? Falls are a serious health threat that can lead to long-term disability and loss of independence. Falls are very preventable; to learn how to reduce your risk for falls, check out AAHI’s website for a resourceful poster on fall prevention. The poster is available in English, Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese.
