Senior Living in Alexandria: October 2018

Every 11 seconds a senior goes to the emergency room because of a fall. It is the number one cause of injury among older people.

So, this month on Senior Living in Alexandria, our host Jim Roberts sat down with Sarah Pappa, PhD, MCHES, a Coordinator at Northern Virginia Falls Prevention Alliance to talk about fall prevention among seniors.

Later in the show, Registered Dietitian Madison Reeder shows us how to jump into fall with a savory and healthy butternut squash pasta recipe.
