Hear from keynote speaker Marc Freedman, Founder and Co-CEO of, on the importance of "embracing shift" as we move toward a co-generational approach to healthy aging and problem-solving in the community. Learn from other speakers and panelists what they are doing to end loneliness and social isolation and how you can help.

Offered by the Massachusetts Taskforce to End Loneliness and Build Community, convened by AARP Massachusetts and the UMass Boston Gerontology Institute.
