The TREATment Lab team recently had the privilege of participating in the 12th annual Fall Prevention Awareness Week. Hosted by the UNLV School of Integrated Health Sciences, this event was a remarkable opportunity for us to connect with Las Vegas older adults and provide free screenings for depression and memory.
