Thursday, June 18th, 2:07 pm
As public officials urge people to stay home and maintain social distance to combat the spread of COVID-19, we've seen a heightened risk of social isolation and loneliness among people of all ages, especially older adults. We hope you can join us at our virtual Social Isolation Impact Summit to fuel collaborative efforts to address this growing problem in the age of COVID-19. The Summit is scheduled for July 1 from 9a-12p Pacific Time.
Our sessions will include:
Fireside Chat: Loneliness, an Epidemic Amplified by COVID-19: Acting Now to Avoid a Social Recession
Identifying and Filling Loneliness Gaps Across California: Government and non-profit roles and initiatives to increase opportunities for social connection among older adults
Connect the Dots: Social Prescribing, Social Justice, and Social Connection: How do the factors of social isolation relate to other social determinants of health?What tools might catalyze meaningful social connections and address fundamental inequities for more resilient communities?
