Falls Prevention Awareness Day 2016: A Compendium of State and National Activities

The 9th annual FPAD was observed on September 22, 2016. National FPAD awareness and media efforts reached an estimated 101 million individuals. At the state and community level, the State Falls Prevention Coalitions members reached nearly 1.5 million individuals through education, awareness, and advocacy efforts, as well as fall-risk screenings and fall prevention programs. The NCOA Falls Free® Initiative hopes this compendium of national and state FPAD efforts will serve as a resource to maximize future Falls Prevention Awareness Day campaigns.
