The Past, Present and Future of Fall Prevention Webinar
Over the past 20 years, falls have been increasing despite everyone's best prevention efforts. In fact, we have doubled the mortality rate for falls in those over 75 years of age in the last decade. Why is this? Falls among older adults are changing, but the way we are addressing them isn't ... until now. Learn why and understand how research points us in a new direction for fall prevention.

An Intergenerational Conversation about Ageism hosted by Colorado Senior Lobby in partnership
with Boomers Leading Change

Location: Mile Hi Church
Address: 9077 W Alameda Ave, Lakewood, CO 80226
In collaboration with Changing the Narrative in Colorado's on the same pAGE campaign, we are hosting a conversation about ageism. Why are we doing this? Ageism - the stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination against people on the basis of their age is pervasive! It can be directed at younger people or older people. Either way, it reduces opportunities and diminishes us all. So, we're hosting a facilitated conversation, with the goal of increasing awareness of ageism and encouraging all of us to take action to address it. We'd love to have you participate. Please register online.
