Jerry Parsons and his wife, Marcy, participate in a balance exercise during A Matter of Balance class on Thursday, Feb. 28, 2019, at St. Patrick Church Parish Hall in Bloomington.

On this week's Podagraph, Government Reporter Derek Beigh and Health Editor Paul Swiech talk about his series on falls, a major but oft-ignored local health issue, and his Sunday story on community volunteer Dodie Dunson.

Paul discusses how widespread a problem falls are in the community, what can contribute to and result from falls, and the proactive ways residents, hospitals and long-term care facilities are preparing for and preventing falls.
