April 10, 2020 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Dennis Culhane Dana and Andrew Stone Professor of Social Policy, School of Social Policy & Practice - University of Pennsylvania
Location: ONLINE
Description:

While COVID-19 affects all communities, the pandemic may have a disparate impact on socioeconomically distressed populations. The health and economic effects on poor and under-resourced areas is likely to be severe and long-lasting. What can we do to meet the needs of vulnerable communities during this crisis? What existing resources can we repurpose, and what new ones are needed to contain the spread of the coronavirus in these areas? During a national movement calling on people to “stay home” and distance socially, what can we do to protect and serve people who are homeless? How can we tap into the sources of strength and resilience in these communities during the coming economic recession? Join us for a virtual seminar featuring three LDI Senior Fellows who have devoted their careers to serving vulnerable communities through research, policy, and practice. We’ll hear about the magnitude of the problems and explore the contours of the solutions.

This virtual seminar is open to the public. Please see instructions on how to join below.

Atheendar Venkataramani Assistant Professor of Medical Ethics and Health Policy - University of Pennsylvania
Location: ONLINE
Description:

As a country, we are facing two unprecedented disasters: a pandemic the likes of which we have not seen in over a century, and projections for an economic downturn and unemployment that will rival the Great Depression. Please join LDI for a virtual seminar with Atheendar Venkataramani, MD, PhD, who will discuss the current economic crisis and its long-term health consequences. What do history and research tell us about what happens to health during an economic recession? How might this time be different, when economic activity has been halted by fears of social interaction rather than slowed by typical economic forces? And how will this affect low-income people, who were already experiencing worsening mortality and rising “deaths of despair”? Rachel Werner, LDI Executive Director, will moderate the discussion and take questions from the audience.

This virtual seminar is open to the public.

The terms "resilience" and "reserve" are used in different and even disparate ways by professionals in different disciplines. In order to advance best practices and research on these topics, it is vital to find common meanings and gain a better understanding of their roles in the health and well-being of older persons. Moreover, in order to develop competitive grant applications, investigators at every professional level may need extra guidance on how to frame their research in this area when applying for related grants from the National Institute on Aging.

The goal of this webinar is to discuss current definitions of resilience and reserve and what makes these topics distinct, and to present a programmatic portfolio and resources to encourage research projects in this growing area of opportunity.

The free, one-hour webinar will explore:

  • What is unique about the resilience paradigm
  • What do we mean by resilience and reserve
  • How is the NIA supporting programmatic developments in resilience and reserve
  • Where to get started: directory of NIA resources

A Q&A will follow.

Please register here by April 28th.
