The annual Falls Prevention Awareness Day (FPAD) raises awareness about how to prevent fall-related injuries among older adults. National, state, and local partners collaborate to educate others about the impact of falls, share fall prevention strategies, and advocate for the expansion of evidence-based community fall prevention programs. National and state efforts are published in NCOA’s annual FPAD Impact Report.

Thank you to the many organizations and partners who champion this effort! If you would like to learn more about fall prevention efforts in your state, please  contact your State Falls Prevention Coalition lead.

There is no official theme associated with 2018 FPAD observance.  States and communities are welcome to select their own coordinated theme based on local interest and/or need.
