CDC Releases ‘Stand STEADI’ Video Series to Highlight Falls Prevention

Oct 9, 2018

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has a new “Stand STEADI” video series highlighting healthcare teams and programs that are successfully implementing fall prevention.

One of those successful programs is a great example for communities looking to become Age-Friendly.

The first two videos of the series were released today, and feature the first accredited geriatric emergency department at St. Joseph’s Healthcare System in New Jersey.

The second shows a citywide strategy by Baltimore’s City Health Department to use real-time data to identify neighborhoods in need of fall prevention activities, which is a replicable model for Age-Friendly Communities. This example could help Age-Friendly leaders and stakeholders engage health departments as well as planners.
