Fall-related hospitalizations in Texas are increasing significantly, according to a study conducted by the Texas A&M Health Science Center School of Public Health. Falls are the leading cause of injury-related death among people age 65 and older, with a third of this population suffering a fall each year.
September is Fall Prevention Month and to mark the occasion, programs within the Texas A&M School of Public Health are collaborating to host in-person events and online trainings across the state.
Researchers from the Texas A&M Health Science Center School of Rural Public Health were awarded the Aetna Susan B. Anthony Award for Excellence in Research on Older Women and Public Health at the 141st APHA Meeting and Expo in Boston, Mass.
