Bergren Forum - The Impact of Loneliness on Older Adults

Bob Maiden

Lack of perceived emotional contact causes divorced men and widowers to be more susceptible to loneliness and depression; whereas, widowed women experience less loneliness and greater well-being because of their larger social networks.

The Bergren Forum is sponsored by the Division of Human Studies, The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the Provost's Office will be meeting at 12:10 pm on Thursdays in the Nevins Theater, Powell Campus Center.

Bring a brown bag lunch, coffee and tea will be provided.
