American Bone Health Fair

Every 13 seconds an older adult is seen in an emergency department for a fall. Falls are the leading cause of hip fractures and the health care costs associated with fall-related injuries totaled $34 billion in 2013. We are planning an event sponsored by the American Bone Health Assn. We will have Ms. Kathy Koehl, our certified American Bone Health educator, and other peer educators available to us who are equipped to screen older adults for balance and strength, and to educate them on how to reduce their risk of falling. We will also have other guest speakers who will educate us on Bone Density tests available at Ochsner. Please join us, we guarantee you will be able to use this valuable information. We will have 2 sessions. First session will be from 10:00 a.m. till 12 noon, and the second session will be from 12 noon till 2:00 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. We will meet in the Ochsner Medical Office Building on the 7th floor Auditorium. Please RSVP as space is limited. April 8, 2016 (Friday)
