If you could prevent someone from becoming critically injured, would you? Maybe you can-and all you have to do is contact USAIC.
Most brain and spinal cord injuries can be prevented by using very simple safety measures and we would like to offer students and senior citizens the opportunity to hear this important message.
The USAIC has been presenting injury prevention programs for many years. THINK FIRST is a national brain and spinal cord injury prevention program that has been presented to thousands of students throughout Chicago and the suburbs. People who present the programs have sustained injuries and speak from their personal experiences. They relate their stories and offer very simple precautionary measures to help reduce the risk of injury. Students like the programs and many teachers have made it part of their curriculum.
Falls become the leading cause of spinal cord injury as people age. USAIC welcomes the opportunity to speak to senior citizen groups and offer simple suggestions to minimize risk of falls.
If you would like to schedule THINK FIRST or FALL PREVENTION for any group, please contact USAIC at firstname.lastname@example.org. Programs are presented free of charge.
