Speaker Dr. Beverly Vayhinger has a Ph.D in Counseling Psychology.
Many older adults feel socially isolated and lonely, which leaves them vulnerable to related health problems such as cognitive decline, depression, and heart disease. Join NIA experts for a Facebook Live Q&A to learn how social isolation impacts your health and how to stay more connected. To increase awareness of this issue, NIA invites you to join them in discussion and resource-sharing to help older adults stay connected and well.
