The South Dakota Fall Prevention Coalition’s mission is to cultivate collaboration to reduce falls by increasing knowledge and implementing evidence-based fall prevention solutions for older adults.  Fall Prevention Awareness Week, held September 20 – 24, 2021, is an opportunity to work toward fewer falls and fall-related injuries for South Dakotans while maximizing their independence and quality of life.
