Ready, Steady, Balance
According to the Georgia Department of Public Health, a Cobb resident goes to the emergency room every hour because of a serious fall. The Cobb County Public Library System is out to reduce that number by offering the Ready, Steady, Balance clinic, teaching ways to prevent the kinds of falls that can be devastating for older citizens. Refine your balance, watch the movement improvement demonstrations and hear from experts about how to develop an action plan for falls prevention.
11 a.m.-1 p.m. Sept. 24. Free. West Cobb Regional Library, 1750 Dennis Kemp Lane, Kennesaw. 770-528-4699, cobbcat.org.
