Tuesday, February 11 – Boquete Health and Hospice The BHH Healthy Living Series presents Falls Prevention Awareness

Falls are the number one reason people end up in the emergency room. The facts about falls are alarming - and probably surprising:

·         One in three adults over the age of 64 falls each year.

·         Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries in Florida residents over the age of 64.

·         Every hour there are 2 deaths and 251 emergency room visits in the US because of a fall.

·         20 - 30% of older adults who fall sustain serious injury.

·         Falls are the most common cause of traumatic brain injury, fractures and hospitalization in older adults.

·         Even falls without an injury can limit one's mobility and/or cause fear of falling.

Come to the BHH presentation on Falls Prevention Awareness to see what you can do to avoid a fall.

 Presenters:  Merl Will-Wallace and Chuck High

 Merl has over 45 years in healthcare including management of home care operations for the placement of home equipment and safety.

 Chuck  is a retired Occupational Therapist who has seen a variety of conditions caused by falls. Usually, they are bumps and bruises but if the angles are right and your luck is bad, you can break a hip, arm, or worse. So please listen to our information about falls prevention, and some of the tools used to stay safe and upright!

Tuesday, March 10 – Quantum Theory for the Layman – Mike Petersen – For more than 100 years, the world of the quantum has been portrayed as being totally weird and mysterious. Richard Feynman, who won a Nobel prize for his work in Quantum Mechanics in 1967, was quoted as saying, “If you think you understand quantum mechanics, then you don’t understand quantum mechanics.” Well, if a Nobel prize winner says that, what is the layman to do?  Come to this talk, that’s what! The quantum world will be explained in terms you can understand, and without using mathematics.

Mike Petersen has a B.S. in mathematics and has loved science, especially cosmology and Quantum Mechanicsever since he can remember. He was a volunteer speaker at more than one planetarium covering topics like Relativity, the Big Bang and more.
