Free Falls Screening Event At The McDowell Senior Center On September 23

The Community Health and Mobility Partnership (CHAMP) program began in McDowell County in 2010, but due to the pandemic, CHAMP has been on hold. Now CHAMP is returning for a one-day event on Friday September 23, 2022, at the McDowell Senior Center. CHAMP is a free all-inclusive falls risk screen and assessment provided by professional volunteers, health science students, their college/university faculty, and retired healthcare professionals. All participants must be registered to be included in the falls risk screening program and will need to bring a list of their current medications for review. If you or someone you love would like to know their risk for falls, please contact the McDowell Senior Center at 659-0823 to schedule your appointment on Friday September 23, 2022.
