FCS Healthy Relationships Aging Team Offers Falls Prevention Coach Training on Feb. 24

A Matter of Balance is an award-winning group program that emphasizes practical strategies to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels. Participants meet in small groups in community settings once a week for eight weeks. Anyone interested in implementing falls prevention classes within your community or who would like to update their previous MOB coach certification is encouraged to attend. A co-coach is required for teaching this class. Extension educators can team up or bring a community leader who may want to co-coach A Matter of Balance classes. The eight-hour coach training will be held on Feb. 24 (9 a.m.-5:30 p.m.) at the Nationwide & Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center. Registration for the training will be available soon.
