Rice County Public Health, Three Rivers Community Action and Milestone Senior Living are teaming up to offer “A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls” in Faribault for interested community members. These evidence based programs help those with concerns about falling improve their quality of life and remain independent.
