The COVID-19 pandemic has upended life in America and is continuing to place new and significant pressures on our fragile system of healthcare and social services, and our once strong economy. And while no one is immune from the impacts of COVID-19, the data is clear that seniors and people with underlying chronic health conditions face the greatest risk of severe illness and death. What can be done to help seniors in San Diego through this extraordinary time? 

Please join us for the fourth and final event in our San Diego: Life. Changing. virtual panel series, San Diego Science & the Global Pandemic: The Impact of COVID-19 on the Senior Population, where leaders from three major nonprofits focused on aging—West Health, Serving Seniors, and the Gary and Mary West Senior Dental Center—will share how they’re helping seniors navigate through this public health crisis and what you can do for the seniors in your life. They’ll also provide new insights on how COVID-19 is leading to changes in public policy, fueling new models of care including telehealth, and catalyzing renewed thought on what it means to age in California and across America.
