Falls prevention is an interdisciplinary effort. Join us for a review of foot, ankle, and lower extremity problems that contribute to increased falls risk, along with the role that podiatric physicians can fulfill in reducing falls. Basic fall screening will be reviewed and provided for attendees. Falls prevention often begins with the feet.
