Brazos Valley:

The Center for Population Health and Aging is hosting a Fall Prevention Awareness event on September 14 from 9am-12pm at the Brazos Center in Bryan, Texas. The event will feature free health screenings, a fall risk escape room, information booths, and giveaways. Bring a pair of “fall-ty” shoes like flip flops or slippers to exchange for door prizes and more! For more information, contact Meredith Martin at 979.436.0606.
