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

The 9th annual FPAD was the most successful FPAD campaign yet, with increased participation from national organizations, federal agencies, coalitions, and state and local partners. 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 FPAD 2017 impact and beyond.
