New Lebanon, N.Y.: Physical therapist to lead fall prevention program


The Seniors’ Ministry of Immaculate Conception/St. Joseph Parish will hold its regular monthly meeting at 12:30 p.m. Friday, June 27, in the parish hall, 732 U.S. Route 20.

This month, the ministry welcomes Doreen Frank, physical therapist and chief executive officer of Columbia Physical Therapy in East Greenbush and Valatie.

Frank will explain the need for good balance and lower leg strength to reduce the risk of falling, especially as people age. Comfortable clothing is suggested as she will demonstrate exercises.

All interested members of the community are invited to attend this program and an ice cream social afterward, at no charge. Lunch will not be served this month.

Information: Mary Linton at (518) 733-0469.
