Social connectedness is essential for health and wellbeing at any age, but may be especially important for promoting health later in life. Older adults are at increased risk for social isolation because they are more likely to face factors such as living alone, the loss of family or friends, and chronic illness. And in today’s environment of social distancing, we are further challenged with needing to consider new ways to stay in touch and remain physically active.

In this webinar, Amber Burrus of Fitbit Health Solutions will be discussing the value and importance of maintaining social connections among older adults, and the role social connectivity plays in the promotion of living a healthy life.

Attendees will learn:

  • Why social connectedness is important and how it affects older adults
  • How to maintain social connections as an older adult in today’s environment
