Pedestrian Safety Program
Walking provides excellent health benefits and opportunities for socializing; however older pedestrians are often at greater risk of injury than other age groups.
GMTMA offers a free pedestrian safety program geared specifically to older adults at senior centers, senior housing and other community facilities. The program helps seniors identify the situations that pose the greatest risk for injury and how to become defensive walkers.
