This publication highlights findings from a recent survey of fall prevention awareness campaigns. To better understand the falls prevention awareness campaigns that states and their falls prevention coalitions have implemented, and the lessons learned from the awareness initiatives, the UNC Institute on Aging interviewed ten state agencies and one national organization between October 2008 and February 2009. To contribute additional information, four states provided results from focus groups with older adults that they had conducted on falls prevention awareness.
