CDC Launches National Campaign to Prevent Older Adult Injuries
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently launched “Still Going Strong,” a national campaign to bring attention to ways older adults 65 and older can age without injury. The campaign aims to raise awareness about the leading causes of unintentional injuries and deaths in older adults. “Still Going Strong” will encourage older adults to continue participating in their favorite hobbies and activities while informing them and their caregivers of steps they can take to prevent injuries that disproportionately impact this population, including falls, motor vehicle crashes, and traumatic brain injury (TBI).
