Staying Connected Everyday AND Through COVID-19
Join Dr. Ben Liptzin, Professor of Psychiatry Emeritus at Tufts University School of Medicine, for a 4 part series where attendees will have an opportunity to share how they are staying connected and discuss how to stay safe, combat isolation and manage anxiety during this challenging time. Registration is limited to allow for meaningful discussion..
For 25 years Dr Liptzin was Chair of Psychiatry at Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, MA. Prior to that he was Director of Geriatric Psychiatry at McLean Hospital in Belmont, MA and Director of the Geriatric Education Center at Harvard Medical School.
For this on-going series, Dr. Liptzin will lead in discussion emphasizing that before the COVID-19 pandemic the Surgeon General identified loneliness as a significant public health problem. Since the onset of the pandemic many of us have been hunkered down with greatly reduced in person contact. Physical distancing does not inevitably lead to social isolation. The dates for this series are Tuesdays, August 18 and 25 AND September 1 and 8.
