Owensboro Health Healthpark To Host “The Doc Is In” May 17th

Dr. Khanh Nguyen and Dr. Trasey Falcone will be presenting and taking questions at a free event titled, “The Doc is In: Aging Gracefully” on May 17, at the Owensboro Health Healthpark. The event will include a health and wellness fair from 8 to 10 a.m., presentations with question-and-answer opportunities on the topic starting at 10 a.m., healthy snacks, tours of the Healthpark, and fun games and prizes.

One of the greatest health risks as we age is risk of injury from falls. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one-third of Americans age 65 or older experiences a fall each year. Falls are also the leading cause of fatal injuries and non-fatal trauma admissions to hospitals among older adults.

Fall prevention and preventative screenings are two topics that will be addressed by Dr. Nguyen and Dr. Falcone during the event.

If you’d like to attend, RSVP by calling 270-688-4855.

Dr. Trasey Falcone is a board-certified physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist and Dr. Khanh Nguyen is a board-certified family medicine physician with Owensboro Health’s One Health medical group.
