Chime in on falls prevention

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force is inviting public comment on its draft recommendation statement on the prevention of falls in older adults.

There are multiple parts of the draft, including clinical considerations and recommendations to prevent falls: physical therapy (of course!) and vitamin D.

With 30-40 percent of Americans over the age of 65 having fallen in the past year, we need to chime in!

The opportunity to comment on this draft recommendation statement is available until February 9.
