EXERCISE-BASED FALL PREVENTION PROGRAMS
Zoomers on the Go
The Zoomers on the Go program began in 2009. It was created to reduce the risk of falling for older adults in the Greater Saint John area. The program was organized with the support of two nurses and an occupational therapist from St Joseph's Community Health Centre. You will learn basic resistance training, balance, and flexibility techniques while becoming more physically active.
Starting in 2017, we received research funding that allowed this effective peer-led program to expand its in-person classes to other communities across New Brunswick. English and French classes are now offered both in-person and online.
The UNB Cellab is responsible for managing the Zoomers on the Go program across the province. You can contact us with any requests related to our program.
