VAN Forums

Jan 272018
 

Social connections are crucial to health and well-being. Recent studies have shown a directly link between loneliness and isolation and negative health outcomes. Loneliness has been called the silent killer, and older adults are particularly at risk.

The following is a recording of a live VAN Forum held in Roseville, MN, on January 25, 2018. The speakers are Dr. Bruce McBeath, licensed psychologist, and James Falvey, executive director of Little Brothers – Friends of the Elderly. 

VitalForce is produced by the Vital Aging Network to make ideas and discussions that foster vital living more broadly available.
