The Fifth Annual Symposium Recap
We would like to thank those who gathered safely in-person and joined us online for the fifth annual symposium of the Ruth Frost Parker Center for Abundant Aging in October 2020. Throughout the day, we engaged in conversations on addressing loneliness, isolation and depression, discussed research findings on the effects of loneliness on the health and well-being of older adults and shared best practices from community initiatives that seek to improve health outcomes. Additionally, we enjoyed a special screening of the documentary, “All the Lonely People,” and engaged in a lively question session with the filmmakers.
Our yearly symposium brings together nationally recognized speakers, experts on aging and an interdisciplinary audience of older adults, students, professionals and community members. Please save the date for our next symposium, October 15, 2021. Information on this program, speakers and registration will be coming soon. Please keep checking this website for more details!
