The Greater New York Links’ Health Advocate Committee for Seniors partnered with Health Advocates for Older People, the New York Foundation for Senior College and the AARP to hold an ongoing geriatric seminar for seniors about preventing falls and what to do after falling at the Brookdale Center for Aging and Longevity at Hunter College in East Harlem.
The seminar was conducted by Naomi Azulay, a noted physical therapist who focuses on balance, strength and fall preventive training. More than 100 seniors from Esplanade Gardens, Chinatown, LaGuardia Senior Citizens Center, Dyckman Senior Center and Brown Gardens Senior Center were in attendance.
“How to Prevent Falls” is one of a series of seminars sponsored by the Greater New York Links’ Health Advocate Committee for Seniors in partnership with other seniors programs throughout New York City.
Lunch was served after the seminar. The female jazz vocalist-led Terri Davis Trio provided entertainment.
The next seminar will focus on “The Right Shoes for Seniors.”
