Berkeley Conversations (LIVE and Recordings)

Across the UC Berkeley campus, researchers are rising to meet the complex challenges of COVID-19 even as the crisis generates waves of news and information that can be confusing and contradictory at times. In response, the university is launching a new online video series, “Berkeley Conversations: Covid-19”, to connect our leading experts with the public they serve, and each other. Through Q&A’s, seminars, and panel discussions, faculty from a wide range of disciplines—from epidemiology to economics to the computing and data now undergirding their work—will share what they know, and what they are learning.

Why COVID-19 Preys on Older Adults: What the Science Says (and Doesn’t Say)

Recorded webinar June 9, 2020

This webinar was the first in a series presented by the American Federation for Aging Research (AFAR) and Grantmakers In Aging, in which scientists and geriatricians will present the research behind care, lifestyle interventions, and programs that can help decrease older adults' vulnerability to COVID-19. AFAR experts will share perspectives that can influence clinical, social, and self-care and inspire new collaborations between the scientific, medical, aging services, and philanthropic communities.
