    Technology… you hear about new surgical techniques and options in the news, magazines, and from friends and family.  Information can be overwhelming and very confusing as to what surgical intervention may be right for you. Many spinal conditions can be treated using a less invasive technique. Join Dr. Paul Stanton, spine surgeon, for a discussion about minimally invasive spine surgery. Learn the benefits, how it can allow for a faster recovery, and who is a potential candidate.

    Stepping On!

    Stepping On empowers older adults to carry out healthy behaviors that reduce the risks of falls. This workshop meets once a week for seven weeks using adult education and self-efficacy principles. In a small group setting, older adults learn balance exercises and develop specific knowledge and skills to prevent falls. Older adults who should attend are those who are, at risk for falling, have a fear of falling, or who have fallen one or more times. The workshop is co-led by a health care professional and a lay leader. Local guest experts assist by providing information on exercise, vision, safety and medications. Limited to 14 participants.

    For dates, times and to register for the Stepping On program, call 719-776-5926.
