Fall Prevention Program Schedule

A Comprehensive Falls Prevention Program Arlington Neighborhood Villages & Marymount University  

Updated October 26, 2015

Many falls can be prevented. By making some small changes, you can significantly lower your chances of falling and stay independent longer! Our series of workshops will assess your level of risk for falling, teach you ways to prevent falls, and help you to develop a personal plan, including how to overcome barriers, to ensure your success.  Attendance at these workshop sessions is free.  However, as space is limited to 30 people for each, we request that you register in advance.  Information on how to register for these programs may be found below.
