Event description

Description

A free public lecture as part of the 27th John K. Friesen conference (www.sfu.ca/fc/2018)

In January 2017, the UK announced a world first: a government Minister with responsibility to combat loneliness. Age UK, the UK’s largest national charity for older people, were involved in driving this step change. This lecture will consider what we know about loneliness, how we can challenge it in our communities and what we can learn from the UK about ‘turbo charging’ loneliness to achieve national awareness of this modern epidemic.

SFU Gerontology Research Centre in collaboration with the Liberal Arts and 55+ Program

Speaker: Angela Kitching
