This webinar will review the current evidence and provide some clinical pearls of wisdom on how exercise can help to reduce the risk of falls.

Dr. Ziebart specializes in working with people with osteoporosis, so specific guidelines will be shared on how exercise can help to reduce the risk of falls and fractures in the osteoporotic population. However, a broader perspective will also be discussed to make sure we reduce falls in all older adults. There will be time for questions so you can ask about how you can personalize your exercise programs and policies to reduce falls risk.

This is part 1/3 of Loop's 'Move, improve, remove' webinar series for Fall Prevention Month .
