Building Better Balance Screener Training YMCA July 24, 2017

The WNC Fall Prevention Coalition is happy to announce a training opportunity for those interested in raising awareness and screening community older adults for fall risk.

Building Better Balance (BBB) offers fall risk screenings in various community locations throughout the year by teams of certified coaches and screeners. BBB is an excellent gateway program to introduce older adults to evidence-based fall prevention programs and other community programs.

The more trained screeners we have the more screenings we can offer – so please consider attending the training and joining our team! BBB Screeners are asked to assist with 1-3 community screening events throughout the year as they are able and training is free.

A BBB Screener Training will be held on Monday, July 24th from 1:00-5:00 pm at the YMCA-Woodfin Branch. A BBB training flyer and general information sheet are attached for more information and training registration information.

Please share this announcement and the attached documents with others who may work with older adults or may be interested in doing so. For more information or questions, please contact Lori Schrodt, PT, PhD at laschrodt@gmail.com.
