Avoiding Diminished Mobility

Northern Door Health & Wellness Ministry continues its Community Health Information Programs with an upcoming presentation on “Slips, Trips and Stumbles: Preventing Falls As We Age.” Come hear Barbara Campbell discuss how to avoid situations that can diminish your mobility. The program will be held on Aug. 24 at the First Baptist Church in Sister Bay and will begin at 4 pm.
