Finding Balance Together - Falls Prevention Coalition

Finding Balance Together logo

  • 1 in 3 adults (65 and older) in the United States fall each year
  • The expected annual cost of fall injuries in the United States is expected to reach $54.9 billion by 2020
  • In Winnebago County, 74% of hospitalizations related to falls were in adults 65 or older (Burden of Injury Prevention Report-Fall 2006)

This coalition is made up of dedicated community and healthcare professionals who have concern over the high rate of falls in Wisconsin and our local community. Our goals are to work collaboratively between state, community and healthcare systems to reduce falls by raising awareness of fall prevention and proven fall prevention programs, reducing fall related injuries, and effect change through leadership, advocacy and education. Anyone interested in local fall prevention activities are welcome to join us
