The COVID-19 pandemic has threatened our health and communities, including some of our most vulnerable populations, such as the elderly. What has the national and global response to the pandemic taught us about our preparedness for such a virus? Have we failed or succeeded in our duty to safeguard the most vulnerable members of our society? What are the lessons learned around long-term care? How will the pandemic influence our long-term strategy for healthy aging?

These are some of the important questions we’ll examine during Conversations Confronting COVID-19: Aging – Lessons learned about Canada’s elderly population and long-term care, the second session in the virtual event series.

Join the webinar, moderated by Dr. Jane Philpott, to hear from a panel of experts from health care, research, and policymaking, and for the opportunity to participate in the Q&A session.
