JCS Connect is a series of virtual sessions that informs and educates community members about critical issues in our community and the work, JCS is doing to help combat these challenges.
This September session, in honor of fall prevention month, this one-hour, in-depth conversation discussed fall prevention strategies for you or your aging loved one. Pablo Rodriguez, a graduate of Northeastern University, is credentialed as a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT), a Certified Myofascial Trigger Point Therapist (CMTPT), and a Credentialed Clinical Instructor (CCI). He has been in practice since 2014. During the discussion on Interventions for Fall Prevention, Pablo highlighted fall prevention strategies, including specific exercises, and resources that support overall health and safety for daily living. Patty Harwood, JCS’ Chief of Programs, then tied in the benefits of having Lifeline RI for you or a loved one at risk of falls.
