UNMC Wins the Balance & Falls SIG Contest

by Andrea Miller | Nov 12, 2018

The University of Nebraska Medical Center won the Balance & Falls SIG video challenge with their submission of Rolling Up Fears of Falls. The students discussed the aspects of falling in older adults and selected the fear of falling as the focus for their video. The students were inspired by their professors Dr. Katherine Jones who has dedicated her career to fall prevention in rural Nebraska hospitals, along with Dr. Dawn Venema who has also played a key roll in our learning about all aspects of falls and how to prevent them. 

UNMC has been awarded $500 to put toward students attending conferences to advance their learning. The students who participated in the project are: Alex Eilers, Jonathan Freeman, Halle Hart, Emilie Hicks, Dana McKenzie, Margaret Morehouse, Morgan Olson Newman and Nicole Potthoff.
