Trevecca Center was proud to partner with the Nashville Public Library, Goodlettsville branch, for an educational day alongside those in the community in support of fall prevention awareness. Clinical professionals, Ava Quick & Sonda McEver of the Trevecca team, led the seminar by sharing prevention protocols while also providing free balance assessments for those in attendance. 

“According to the CDC, Every 19 mins an aging adult dies from a fall-related injury, and every 11mins is admitted to the ER due to a fall. It is critical that we provide resources to our senior communities to help minimize the risk of falling. We look forward to partnering with programs like “Be Well” and the NPL in pursuit of this goal.” – Ava K. Quick, MS, CCC-SLP  

Elizabeth Roth of the Nashville Public Library shared, “Nashville Public Library was pleased to partner with physical therapy professionals from Trevecca Center in order to bring a falls prevention program to seniors in the community. The falls self-assessment checklist and exercise demonstrations made it interactive and engaging for all who attended. We will definitely partner around this topic again!”
