Western Piedmont Council of Governments


Western Piedmont AAA will be holding a Matter of Balance Coach/Leader training on January 29th and 30th from 9:00 – 1:00 at the WPCOG office if you, or anyone you know, is interested in this free 2-day training to become certified to lead this program.  Matter of Balance is an evidenced-based program taught over 8 sessions that is designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase the activity levels of older adults who have concerns about falls.  We have very few certified leaders in our region to help us provide this free program to older adults in our communities.  The training is free and we provide all your needed materials to teach – if you are teaching it in our region (Alexander, Burke, Caldwell and Catawba counties).  $150 if you want to be trained from outside our region.

Please see the attached flyer and application.
