Preventing falls among older people

Today Dr Daina Sturnieks was invited onto ABC Radio National to speak on the amazing work being done by the Falls Prevention Lab.

It’s estimated at least a third of people aged over 65 around the world suffer a fall every year, with horrible consequences, which sometimes include death. Dr Daina Sturnieks went on to talk about why our risk of falling increases with age and her research into how falls can be prevented.
