Fall Prevention

More than one in three people 65 years or older fall each year. The risk of falling and subsequent fall-related problems rises with age.

Do not let the fear of falling keep you from living an active, independent life. Join Tony Rosen to learn how to prevent falls, including a discussion of practical, effective tools to avoid, reduce and manage falling.

Tony E. Rosen, M.D., MPH, a Weill Cornell Medicine associate emergency medicine professor, is an elder abuse and geriatric injury prevention researcher. His research focuses on improving identification, intervention and prevention of elder abuse. He has explored physical elder abuse forensic injury patterns, identifying specific, clinically detectable differences between unintentional injuries and those from abuse.
