COVID has revealed much about our older generations. Unfortunately, it has left devastating statistics in its wake on our community members over 60 and their families. The GOSW Collaborative for Older Adults will present how the pandemic has forever impacted this vulnerable population. We will also highlight the intersectionality on how disparities of gender, race and geography dictate quality of living as we age. Government programs alone aren’t enough for this growing demographic. What we do now can make a positive difference for the future of our community. This session will explore areas where public and private philanthropy can work together.
