Western North Carolina Fall Prevention Coalition(WNCFPC) strives to provide communities with descriptions of collaborative resources, including meetings, events, and resource list of local providers with the common goal of decreasing fall related injuries in WNC. The coalition also aims to grow our fall prevention impact by further encouraging neighboring communities to organize regional resources with the guidance of our WNCFPC.
Our Western North Carolina Falls Prevention Coalition strives to provide community specific resources for fall prevention. As part of these collaborative efforts, we encourage residents and leaders to meet in their own communities and represent their specific needs as related to falls prevention.
