The Brigham’s Falls Prevention Outreach program is led by Katherine Palm, MSW, the injury prevention coordinator in the Division of Trauma, Burn, and Surgical Critical Care. Katherine hosts a series of workshops including two evidence-based falls prevention programs:
- Tai Chi for Arthritis
- A Matter Balance
Through these programs, Katherine works with older adults in the Boston area to reduce their risk of injury from falling and with a goal of improving their strength, flexibility, and balance. Our Falls Prevention Outreach efforts help participants maintain their health and independence by preventing falls and resulting injuries.
