Why Are Adults 55+ Especially Vulnerable to COVID-19?
American Federation for Aging Research is hosting a free webinar 11am - 12pm ET / 8am - 9am PT Tuesday, May 12 to review how immune health makes older adults more vulnerable to COVID-19 and other pathogens, and offer evidence-backed suggestions for what you can do to promote healthy aging and boost your immune health.
The webinar is designed for the general public and will be led by renowned doctors and researchers. They'll answer questions like:
- What is it about immune aging that makes older adults more vulnerable to COVID-19?
- How does aging impact the severity of viruses?
- How can exercise, nutrition and other lifestyle factors improve your immune health?
- Are there treatments that can bolster one's immune defenses against COVID-19?
A Q&A will follow where attendees can ask their own questions. More information is here
