Falling Prevention Class

A major panhandle population is stranded in their own homes -- fearing for their lives, according to a local organization.

Injuries related to falling are a leading cause of death among seniors citizens -- as well as a leading cause of social lives shutting down.

To help reduce these, the organization has launched a new eight-week course. It goes over exercises to boost balance and expand endurance.

If you are interested in taking the class, it's free. Just call 331-2227.
