The Threat of Throwaway Culture to the Elderly in a Time of Covid

Wednesday, September 16, 2020
12:30 – 1:30 p.m.

The current pandemic, which is most deadly to the elderly and those with other underlying medical conditions, underscores the challenges associated with how our elders are cared for in the United States. During this event, we will discuss how public health and medical care choices impact such populations, the conditions of congregate living in our country, and the conflict between generations that might inform how policymakers protect the nation’s elderly and most vulnerable.


This event is open to alumni, faculty/staff, parents, students, and the public.
