THE Governor’s Proclamation for National Falls Prevention Awareness Week!
September 20 - 24, 2021
We wish to remember and honor Tomie dePaola, a beloved NH children’s author and illustrator. Tomie was a strong advocate for falls prevention awareness in NH. Sadly, Tomie passed away unexpectedly in March of 2020. Tomie’s award-winning falls prevention Public Service Announcement garnered national recognition and praise through the National Council on Aging. Through this PSA, we wish to commemorate Tomie’s work and legacy for reducing falls in New Hampshire.
