Free balance screening for adults 55+

Postby mtav » Wed Jan 11, 2017 4:03 pm

The Senior Awareness & Fall Education Central Valley Coalition will host a balance screening for adults (age 55 and over) on Feb. 2 from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. at California Health Sciences University (45 N. Clovis Ave).

The screenings will assess the strength, balance and risk of falling for pre-registered individuals and also provide educational materials, as well as a six-month post-assessment checkup.

Fresno State students from nursing, physical therapy and kinesiology will collaborate with pharmacy students from California Health Sciences University to complete the hour-long screenings, under the supervision of licensed nurse practitioners and physical therapists. An appointment is required.

Registration will close Jan. 20.

To schedule an appointment, contact Melissa Villegas at 559.278.7539.
