Every year, chronic illness and falls among older adults cost thousands of lives and millions in health care costs. But funding for proven Chronic Disease Self-Management Education (CDSME) and evidence-based Falls Prevention programs are facing 5% cuts in fiscal year 2016. The National Council on Aging (NOCA) has developed this graphic to share the details. 

Before Thanksgiving, Congress will decide on 2016 funding levels for these programs. Contact your Federal Legislators and let them know what you think.
