The program will be “Falls: What do you need to know and What can you do to prevent them?” The program will be given by Kathy Helmink RN CDE, director of disease management, and Debbie Hellbusch RN, director of Jefferson Family Home Care. A light lunch will be available for a freewill donation beginning at 12 p.m., and the program will begin at 12:15 p.m. Pre-registration is required by calling Lana Likens at (402) 729-6855.
