National Council on Aging Presents - National Falls Prevention Awareness Week
The National Council on Aging has sponsored National Falls Prevention Awareness week for the past 15 years. The goal of this campaign is to provide older adults with valuable information on how to reduce their risk of falling, and spread awareness about why this matters. NCOA's Falls Free CheckUp is an online screening tool that can serve as a first step for older adults to learn more about falls risk and steps to prevent falls and accidents.
National Falls Prevention Awareness Week will be held on September 18-24, 2022.
Although more than 1 million women in the United States experience menopause each year, little is known about its impact on health. National Institute on Aging (NIA) -funded researchers are working to better understand menopause and how women from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds can benefit from that scientific knowledge to live healthier lives — before, during, and after their reproductive years.
This article explores some of the topics scientists are studying, including midlife-related changes and menopause, potential treatments for symptoms, and the connection between menopause and the brain.
