    One in five patients are not satisfied with their knee replacement. Patient-specific knee implants may provide a better solution than traditional, off-the-shelf implants with respect to implant fit, implant shape, implant rotation and kinematics. These may lead to improvements in pain, function, and patient satisfaction. Learn the rationale for rethinking knee replacement at this community education program.

    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.
