The Board will consider adopting a resolution proclaiming the first day of autumn, Sept. 22, 2013, as "Fall Prevention Awareness Day." About 30 percent of Marin's population is 60 or older, and one in there older adults experiences a fall that causes injury each year. The Board seeks to raise awareness of the issue and urge nonprofits, health care providers and other local agencies to join in the outreach effort.
