Thursday, September 29th from 1:30 - 3:30

at the Xenia Community Center, 1265 W. Second St

 

Falls are the leading cause of emergency room visits, hospital stays, and deaths for seniors but they do not have to be!

Come to the 2022 Event as we learn to reduce our risk of falls and keep ourselves strong, healthy and upright!  We will have fall and balance assessments, movement and exercise demonstrations, technology resources, review of medications (bring your med list), door prizes, a grab'n'go snack bag, and a Live Remote with Real Roots Radio's Roy Hatfield.
