Fall Risk Assessments

Could you be at risk for a fall? Find out how to reduce your risk with this free assessment. We are partnering with Winston-Salem State University to offer simple assessments that include 3-4 balance and coordination tests. You will receive a fall risk assessment score and tips on how to improve with some exercises. WSSU will take some anonymous data for research purposes and have participants take a small survey before the tests.
