The York City Bureau of Health will host a series of classes based on the fall-prevention program, A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls, 10 a.m.-noon Mondays and Thursdays, Oct. 19-

Nov. 12, at Aldersgate United Methodist Church, 397 Tyler Run Road.

For adults ages 65 and older, falls can cause moderate to severe injuries, such as hip fractures and head traumas, and can increase the risk of early death. Yet falls are largely preventable.

The classes will feature activities and practical information.

Registration is due by Wednesday. To register, call the bureau at 845-6532.
