Free Documentary Screening on Loneliness & Isolation focuses on Older Adults
Decades of research have shown that social isolation and loneliness can be as dangerous to your health as smoking or obesity. On this edition of NPT’s Aging Matters series, we will explore how growing older can be an isolating experience and the difference between being isolated and feeling isolated or lonely. We’ll also look at innovative ways to create communities that prevent isolation and social withdrawal as we age.

A continental breakfast will be provided, and an expert panel discussion with audience Q&A will immediately follow the screening. This event is free and open to the public.
