It may not receive the attention many other health issues do, but falls are the leading cause of unintentional injury related deaths among Arizonans 65 and older. That statistic comes to us from the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS). Below are a few infographics from the ADHS on the injuries related to falls in our state. We have also included some links to resources on preventing falls. By the way, Falls Prevention Awareness Day is Sept. 22 this year. Once you’ve had a chance to look over some of this info, we’d love to hear your thoughts. Generating meaningful conversations around key health issues affecting Arizonans is another way we are working toward our long-term goal of one day making Arizona the Healthiest State in the Nation!
