Dr. Bordenave receives award from Arizona Falls Prevention Coalition

November 11, 2019
Posted In: Arizona Campus, ASHS, ATSU News, Awards, University Headlines

Elton Bordenave, PhD, MEd, director of the falls prevention program recently received an award from the Arizona Falls Prevention Coalition for his leadership in the delivery of evidence-based falls prevention programs in Maricopa County through A.T. Still University’s (ATSU) Still Standing Falls Prevention Outreach program.

Since the program began in 2008, more than 6,000 participants have attended falls prevention classes led by ATSU students. Students in every program of study at ATSU participate in Falls Prevention Outreach. The program is designed to minimize older adults’ risk of being injured in a fall, while bolstering their confidence and improving overall quality of life.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, falls are the leading cause of injury among older adults. Over the last decade, Still Standing Falls Prevention Outreach has addressed this public health concern, while providing valuable interdisciplinary learning opportunities for ATSU students.

Babak Nayeri, ND, FACFE, DAAPM, executive consultant, Healthy Aging, Arizona Department of Health Services nominated Dr. Bordenave for the award with the Arizona Falls Prevention Coalition.
