How we can embrace our aging population during COVID-19 and beyond

The current pandemic means members of our vulnerable aging population are more cut off than usual. Many are suffering from food insecurity, loneliness and isolation. Ayesha Dixon, Director of UCLA Emeriti/Retirees Relations Center, speaks with Dr. Brandon Koretz, co-chief of UCLA’s geriatric medicine division, about how we can come together to face these challenges, raise awareness and address disparities. They will also discuss the broad benefits of intergenerational societies that effectively integrate the aging population into communities.
