Event Details

When the first wave of Covid-19 hit the U.S. earlier this year, America failed to protect older people living in long-term care facilities. Although only 0.5% of Americans live in nursing homes, nursing home residents have accounted for a quarter of deaths from the pandemic to date. In this session, we’ll gather experts from across the country to discuss how our society can introduce better policies and technologies to safeguard vulnerable people from Covid-19 and other disease outbreaks in the future.
