The Pandemic Within the Pandemic: Overcoming Social Isolation in the Time of COVID 19

Wednesday 09/23/2020 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM
Webinar Presentation

Prior to COVID 19 a silent epidemic was already raging: social isolation among the elderly. The pandemic has now greatly exacerbated the already well-documented impacts of isolation, loneliness, and physical & mental health of older adults. This program will familiarize participants with these risk factors and impacts, and offer practical resources as well clinical strategies to address them.
