Stay Steady Vermont
Stay Steady Vermont (SSV)
Stay Steady Vermont (SSV) is a collaborative effort spearheaded by the VT Chapter of the American Physical Therapy Association (VTAPTA). For 2 weeks surrounding National Fall Prevention Awareness Day (always the first day of autumn), volunteer PTs and PTAs team up with senior service organizations across the state to provide fun, interactive group education coupled with individual screening for fall risk. Since these efforts began in 2013, over 1300 older Vermonters have been screened and even more have been educated during SSV events. Look for updates here as the time for new events approaches. Email Maggie Holt PT, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you are interested in volunteering at or hosting an event in the future.
