The John D Spreckels Center and its partners are want to help you Spring into Health with educational presentations and free health screenings this month!

Learn how to take Steps to Prevent Falls with Dr. Kimberly Bell at the City of Coronado’s John D. Spreckels Center on Thursday, April 18, 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Each year, 3 million older people are treated in emergency departments for fall injuries. In 2015, the total medical costs for falls was more than $50 billion. More than one out of four older people falls each year, but less than half tell their doctor. Dr. Bell will present information on this and other research findings relevant to effective fall prevention and discuss the benefits of medical management. This program is free.
