RECOGNIZING NATIONAL SAFETY MONTH
Senior Umbrella Network of Brooklyn has taken a leadership role in the area of Fall Prevention. We have established a robust program , Stand Up for Fall Prevention, which is focused on education and advocacy for this issue.
There is a planned Fall Prevention presentation and discussion scheduled for Thursday, June 30 - The invitation flyer is attached with this email. Seating is limited and a RSVP is required. Please review the flyer and RSVP as noted.
Our featured speaker is Jeffrey Rosenfeld, PhD.
Dr. Jeff Rosenfeld is a Gerontologist who looks at the interplay of aging, architecture, and design. For the past 3 years he has been SUN's Fall-Prevention consultant, and helped SUN-B to launch Stand-Up For Fall-Prevention, which is now known throughout the borough of Brooklyn. Dr. Rosenfeld's books include Home Design in an Aging World (Bloomsbury Publishing, 2013); and UnAssisted Living (Monacelli Press/Random House, 2012). He is currently looking at Brooklyn's diverse communities to better understand social and ethnic differences in rates of serious falls by Seniors.
