Senior Umbrella Network of Brooklyn has taken a leadership role in the area of Fall Prevention. We have established a robust program , Stand Up for Fall Prevention,  which is focused on education and advocacy for this issue.

There is a planned Fall Prevention presentation and discussion scheduled for Thursday, June 30 - The invitation flyer is attached with this email. Seating is limited and a RSVP is required. Please review the flyer and RSVP as noted.

Our featured speaker is Jeffrey Rosenfeld, PhD. 

Dr. Jeff Rosenfeld is a Gerontologist who looks at the interplay of aging, architecture, and design. For the past 3 years he has been SUN's Fall-Prevention consultant, and  helped SUN-B  to launch  Stand-Up For Fall-Prevention, which is now known throughout the borough of Brooklyn.   Dr. Rosenfeld's books include Home Design in an Aging World (Bloomsbury Publishing, 2013); and UnAssisted Living (Monacelli Press/Random House, 2012).  He is currently looking at Brooklyn's diverse communities to better understand social and ethnic differences in rates of serious falls by Seniors.  For the past 10 years he has been teaching "Design for Aging Populations" at Parsons School of Design in Manhattan.

We look forward to welcoming you at this event. If you have any questions, please contact:
