Fall and Injury Prevention
Falls are the leading cause of emergency room visits and home injury. Each year, one out of three seniors suffers moderate to severe injuries, leading to nursing home placement. Many falls, however, are preventable. Taking simple steps to prevent falls can help you and those you love stay active and maintain independence.

Community Wellness Programs
Each hospital member of North Shore-LIJ Health System organizes wellness and outreach programs for community members. Screenings, health fairs, and walks are held in conjunction with national campaigns (Heart Health, Blood Pressure, Prostate Cancer and Skin Cancer) and throughout the year at educational events, all of which are open to the public.
