A Matter of Balance Website
Enhancing Accessibility and Confidence Through Innovative Training
“A Matter of Balance” stands as a pivotal program offered by UT Extension, designed to address and manage the concerns surrounding falls among participants. Initially conceived to be delivered entirely through in-person training, the unforeseen challenges of COVID-19 necessitated a swift adaptation. This led to the creation of a comprehensive website, supplemented by strategic social media engagement and Zoom sessions, to facilitate both virtual and hybrid training solutions. This initiative underscores our commitment to accessibility and the well-being of our community, ensuring that vital training can continue uninterrupted, regardless of external circumstances.
