Third Annual

UnLonely Symposium 2019

RSVP: Free Registration

From Awareness to Solutions

Join Us for this Important and Innovative Convening!

Loneliness is a public health epidemic.  It is at the root of many physical and mental health conditions that erode health status, reduce the quality of life, and increase mortality rates.  From a social perspective, we see loneliness heightening anxiety, divisiveness, and isolation across a wide range of populations.

In response, many organizations—from community centers to hospitals to colleges to workplaces—are now actively searching for effective, scalable, and sustainable programs that foster connection and belonging.

The UnLonely Symposium will explore an array of leading-edge programs that address particularly vulnerable populations.  Please join us to share your organization’s challenges and experiences and to take advantage of this unique opportunity to connect with your peers!

What We Will Achieve Together

Addressing loneliness through a variety of program strategies, with the goals of increasing awareness of this pervasive social determinant of health, reducing the stigma that often surrounds it, and increasing a sense of connection.

We will dive deep and explore programs targeting loneliness and isolation from a multi-stakeholder perspective, in several especially impacted populations, including:
