Loneliness and Isolation: A Disease of Despair

Humans are wired for social connection, but we’re becoming more isolated over time. Loneliness and social isolation represent significant threats to individual and societal health and well-being so much so that the US Surgeon General has issued a recent report entitled Our Epidemic of Loneliness and Isolation. Social connection can lead to healthier, more prosperous and resilient individuals and communities.

Please join us as Dr. Lawrence Sinoway, MD, Director of Penn State’s Clinical and Translational Science Institute discusses potential causes of this epidemic, which groups are most predisposed, what conditions are worsened by loneliness and isolation and strategies to prevent and treat it.
