Please join the Friends of the National Institute on Aging (FoNIA) and our distinguished panelists on Thursday, August 6, 2020, 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm, EDT for a webinar on COVID: Opportunities and Obstacles in Aging Research and Caregiving which will explore the nexus between the COVID-19 virus and older adults.  Register here. Specifically, our three panelists will discuss: 

  • What does data around COVID tells us about existing racial, economic and geographical health disparities;∙
  • How aging research can be more inclusive in light of COVID exposed disparities;
  • Opportunities to study care needs of older adults and their caregivers before, during and after the COVID-19 pandemic; and
  • How aging impacts the effectiveness of potential COVID treatments and vaccines.
