By volunteering as a "Guest Healthcare Professional" you will provide a link to the medical community for older adults enrolled in our falls prevention program, A Matter of Balance. Guest Healthcare Professionals interact directly with workshop participants to respond to questions and provide a demonstration about falls (we’ll even provide you with a guide!).
