Northern Virginia Falls Prevention Regional Training Office
The Northern Virginia Falls Prevention Regional Training Office (RTO) is housed in the Malek School of Health Professions at Marymount University. This RTO was established in 2016 as part of a U.S. Administration on Aging - Administration for Community Living grant to increase the number and reach of evidence-based falls prevention programs in the Northern Virginia region.
The RTO is charged with hosting training programs for those interested in leading an evidence-based falls prevention program and servicing as a resource for leaders and coaches. The RTO is also a repository for trained leaders/coaches in the region.
