By | 2020-05-15T10:27:53-04:00 March 26th, 2020|COVID-19, National, News|

This tele-town hall is a dial-in event and requires no internet access to join.

Join by telephone: 1-888-475-4499, event passcode: 423 660 186.

The coronavirus pandemic has caused a severe vulnerability for aging populations and people with chronic conditions who are most at risk of health complications during this critical time. Additionally, misinformation and misunderstanding of how to care for these individuals in the elderly community are on the rise.

There is a critical need to fill in the gaps of communication in aging communities on COVID-19 and provide both accurate guidance and approaches to protect our most vulnerable and diverse communities. As our government, corporate and community leaders work to create bold solutions, it is imperative that the impact on aging populations is top of mind and their needs are a part of informing those solutions.
