Everyone knows that it is not safe to text while driving. But, did you know that texting while WALKING could also be problematic?

Check out the E-card and information below for additional details

The Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) designed a falls prevention e-card for seniors that says, “Don’t Walk and Text”.  The e-card was in response to an article DHSS Director Gail Vasterling read about the dangers of seniors walking and texting, and her idea of promoting that theme.

The e-card is posted on the department’s e-card site, http://health.mo.gov/ecard/index.php. The e-card links to the DHSS Show Me Falls Free website, http://www.health.mo.gov/seniors/showmefallsfreemissouri/.  At that site, a header titled “Don’t Walk and Text—You Could Fall” links to the article Director Vasterling read,
