Dates: September 21-25, 2020

NCOA is excited to announce that this year’s annual Falls Prevention Awareness Day is being extended to a full week!

Our goal remains the same: Raise awareness about how to prevent falls among older adults. During the week, national, state, and local partners will educate the community, share strategies, and advocate for evidence-based programs. See what we accomplished in 2019.

We encourage you to use the resources below to participate in 2020! To learn more about efforts in your state, please contact your State Falls Prevention Coalition lead.

Falls Prevention Awareness Week is made possible in part by Allwell and Wellcare by Centene and by a grant from the U.S. Administration for Community Living.
