Online: Falling Up
September 11, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm| Free
During this online fall prevention webinar we will explore the actions we can take to lower our fall risk through impactful changes in our lives. We will go over an exercise program that has been proven to reduce falls by 35% in people over 65. Additionally, we’ll talk about techniques in case you do fall to reduce your chance of injury.
Our guest speaker, Annick Lamb, is a doctor of physical therapy who has worked in Santa Barbara for 6 years in outpatient clinics, home health and telehealth. In each of these settings, she has taught many of her clients fall prevention techniques and strategies. She is passionate about strength and balance training because of the impact it has on her client’s abilities, health and quality of life. In her free time, you can find Annick hiking with her dog, surfing and gardening.
