This year’s virtual conference will discuss the implications of COVID-19 on older adults from a biopsychosocial perspective, including disparities across cultural groups, and provide an overview of where we’ve been, the current status of the pandemic, and an up-to-date view of where we are headed. Conference participants will gain hope from lessons learned and insights on future outlooks from healthcare and human services experts as well as personal experiences from those on the frontline. Those lost to COVID-19 will also be honored during the conference with a meaningful memoriam. This event is being hosted by the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Continuing Education contact hours provided by Nebraska Methodist College Professional Development.
