Fall prevention will be featured during the next Parkinson's Support Group meeting at Tomah Memorial Hospital.
Monroe County Health Dept., health educator Kayleigh Day will talk about ways to prevent falls and promote the local Stepping On program. Falls are a leading cause of injury in the home, and the session will focus on obstacles that might be issues for people with Parkinson's.
Tomah Memorial's Parkinson's support group meets the first Tuesday of each month to provide support for patients and family members, treatment options and social time.
