Event description

Description

Every year in Gwinnett County, there are over 3,400 visits to the ER by residents age 55 and older due to falls. This results in about two Emergency Room visits per hour, and the cost to the US just in terms of Medicare is staggering. Serious falls are NOT an inevitable part of aging. Learn how to protect yourself.

Presented by the Gwinnett County Public Library, in partnership with Gwinnett County Fire and Emergency Services, Georgia Department of Public Health, and Gwinnett County, this workshop is free and open to the public. Reservations are requested by emailing events@gwinnettpl.org.

Three dates, times, and places are available:

  • Wednesday, September 5 @ 1:00 pm – Bethesda Senior Center, 225 Bethesda Church Road, Lawrenceville, GA 30044
