Monthly Taskforce Meeting

During this meeting, taskforce members discussed the impact of social isolation on the health of older adults and how older adults in historically marginalized groups (ex. Immigrants, LGBTQ+) are further impacted due to social stigma, language barriers and other factors. Taskforce members also learned how social connectedness relates to chronic disease prevention, healthy eating and active living. The team ended the meeting by addressing where further research is needed to assess the impact of social isolation on health.
