KVIE, the public television station for inland Northern California and the Central Valley, will soon air “Before the Fall,” a documentary on strategies — such as improving strength and balance — for reducing the risk of falling as part of healthy aging.
Produced through the station's "Viewfinder" series, the documentary includes interviews with UC Davis Health experts Mark Lee, professor of orthopaedic surgery, and Christy Adams, trauma prevention coordinator and co-founder of the StopFalls Coalition. Lee addresses advances in surgically treating fall injuries, and Adams discusses successful fall-prevention initiatives in our community.
The documentary premieres Wednesday, Sept. 20, at 7 p.m., and repeats Friday, Sept. 22, at 4 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 24, at 6:30 p.m. Check the KVIE schedule for providers and additional repeat times in your area.
