Balance, Flexibility and Strength, Oh My!

Maintaining health and fitness as we get older is so important. Staying active helps us to not only keep doing the things we want to do, but also helps with preventing and managing chronic conditions AND decreases our risk for a fall. Join Bethesda Metro Area Village and Dr Sara Pappa for an informative presentation on how to incorporate safe and effective exercises into your daily life. The presentation will include sample exercises (that you can do at home!) and practical strategies for falls prevention and other tips to reduce your risk for a fall. Dr. Pappa, a Master Certified Health Education Specialist (MCHES), is an Assistant Professor in the Health and Human Performance Department at Marymount University in Arlington, VA. She holds a BS in Health Education and Promotion from the University of Cincinnati, an MA in Exercise Physiology from Kent State University and a PhD in Health Education from the University of Cincinnati. In addition to teaching, she manages the regional falls prevention initiative, including the Northern Virginia Falls Prevention Alliance. This work is supported by a federal grant from the Administration on Community Living.
