Loneliness: A Public Health Crisis

On March 21, the San Francisco Global Shapers hosted a panel discussion to explore the successes and challenges experienced by organizations that are tackling this issue for seniors in diverse ways: from local grassroots initiatives to healthcare programs and scalable technology solutions.

Loneliness and social isolation are on the rise, especially among seniors, causing worse physical health, diminished quality of life, and shorter lifespans. It's time to build a culture of social health.

Hosted by the San Francisco Global Shapers (an initiative of the World Economic Forum) at the Google Community Space.
