Regional Conversations addressing Loneliness and Social Isolation

Please join us to share your experiences, ideas and expertise as to how we can create socially inclusive communities. Before Coronavirus, loneliness and social isolation had reached epidemic proportions and were already critical public health issues facing our communities. Stay-at-home orders have magnified this issue and raised public awareness of its negative impact. What we need now are solutions for building connections and community!

Who: The event is being hosted by the Taskforce to End Loneliness and Build Community and facilitated by AARP Massachusetts and the Gerontology Institute at UMass Boston. Our regional hosts include Madeline Noonan, Peg McDonough, Andrea Burns, and Sabrina Feldeisen.

What: A working meeting to discover and develop solutions for social isolation across the Commonwealth in support our Age-Friendly Efforts.
