BIAA Celebrates Falls Prevention Awareness Month
September 3, 2019
While older adults and young children are at highest risk groups for sustaining traumatic brain injury (TBI) due to falls, everyone is at risk. The good news is that many falls can be prevented. Parents and caregivers can play a key role in protecting children, while adults can take proactive measures to reduce their risks.
The Brain Injury Association of America supports the implementation, dissemination, and sustainability of evidence-based falls prevention programs and strategies to reduce the incidence of falls.
