According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in three adults ages 65 or older falls annually. Less than half of those individuals talk to their healthcare provider about it. In 2010, 2.3 million older adults were treated in emergency rooms for nonfatal fall injuries. Of those, nearly 662,000 were hospitalized.

The Terrific Tea will offer social time and blood pressure checks with Freeman Screen Team from 9:30 – 10 am. Refreshments will be served.
