Evening Blood Pressure Screening/Informational Table

Sponsored By: Carilion New River Valley Medical Center
Location: Christiansburg Recreation Center Lobby
Additional Information: Do you know your numbers?  Blood pressure consists of two numbers.  Your systolic pressure measures the pressure of blood against artery walls when the heart pumps blood out during a heartbeat, while the diastolic pressure measures the same pressure between heartbeats when the heart fills with blood.  Both of these numbers are important and just because one is normal doesn’t mean you’re off the hook.  Come get checked!

Falls Prevention Awareness Day Fair

That’s why Carilion Trauma Services is joining forces with the National Council on Aging (NCOA) and the Falls Free Coalition. While falls are the leading cause of both fatal and nonfatal injury for people 65 years of age and older, they are not an inevitable part of aging. This year’s Fall Prevention Awareness Day theme, Take a Stand to Prevent Falls, seeks to raise awareness about how to prevent fall-related injury among older adults. Take initiative in your health and help prevent falls.
