Invitation to join the Canadian planning team for Fall Prevention Month 2017

April 11, 2017

Fall Prevention Month encourages organizations to coordinate their efforts for a larger impact. Organizations across Canada participate by planning activities and sharing evidence-based information on fall prevention. Together, we can raise the profile of fall prevention and help everyone see their role in keeping older adults active, independent, and healthy as they age.

What’s new for the 2017 campaign?
• Encouraging participation beyond the health sector
• Updating, improving, and expanding the campaign Toolkit
• Planning a bigger launch event
• Working closely with the media
• Having a national (Canadian) focus
• Ensuring a fully bilingual campaign
