On Friday, September 28th, at 1 p.m., Charles Lawler, M.D., internal medicine physician with the Little Company of Mary Medical Group, will be speaking at the Evergreen Park Senior Center (9547 South Homan Ave.) on fall prevention.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in every four Americans age 65 or older fall each year. Falls are the leading cause of injuries for Seniors and are not only costly but can change your quality of life. However, falling is not an inevitable part of aging. Dr. Lawler will provide you with information on how to reduce the number of falls by making practical lifestyle adjustments.
