|Pat Brannon is a Wellness Trainer for the Area Agency on Aging 1-B, and an inaugural trainee when the agency began offering the 8-week fall prevention program known as A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls several years ago. |
At that time, he was using a cane and many times a wheel chair for major balance issues due to an acute stroke in 2008. He cannot stress enough how much this program and the participants have benefitted him over these past eight years.
Pat is so very grateful for the lessons and the inspiration he continues to gain from his interactions through fall prevention programming as well as many other health and wellness programs he facilitates with older adults.
