COVID-19 and the Future of Aging

COVID-19 and the Future of Aging

June 22 at 7:30 am PDT / 10:30 am EDT 

The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed health, social, and racial divides, and exposed negative perceptions of the value of older adults and their roles in a multi-generational society. Concurrently, it is also accelerating and changing broad trends in work, retirement, and health. The time is ripe for a critical examination of the long-term impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on older adults, including what can be done to stem the worst outcomes and to realize silver linings. During this panel, experts across sectors will share their perspectives on how we can forge a better future in the wake of the pandemic.
