MADISON — The Evidence-Based Health Policy Project (EBHPP) will host a briefing on programs and research at UW-Madison on falls among older adults. The event will be held at the Wisconsin State Capitol, Room 411-South, on September 28th, from 11:00am-12:30pm. The program is free and open to the public, with advance registration recommended.

The event, Preventing Falls Among Older Adults: What’s New and Emerging at UW?, will feature three presentations from UW-Madison faculty, and members of their teams, on ongoing research and evidence-based programming across the state:

The EBHPP is a partnership with the UW Population Health Institute, the La Follette School of Public Affairs, and the Wisconsin Legislative Council. The non-partisan project bridges medicine and health policy, as well as research and practice, to serve the Wisconsin Legislature and other decision-makers. Originally formed in 2002, the EBHPP aims to connect localized health research with key stakeholders in Wisconsin, with the goal of encouraging an evidence-informed approach to policy-making.
