Philadelphia

Every year, 1 of every 3 US adults over 65 experience a fall, with almost 1 of 5 sustaining a serious injury. The CDC reports that people who fall are two to three times as likely to fall again, and each fall increases the chances of serious injury or even death. Protecting seniors from falls is a health, wellness, and quality of life imperative.

Aging2.0 Philadelphia is pleased to host 3 experts for a fascinating discussion on industry innovations to protect seniors from falls. You’ll have the opportunity to hear from the experts then join each individual for an interactive virtual discussion. Our panel includes:
