Social isolation and loneliness are an indication of the number of social supports and the perceived collective quality of those connections. Dr. Mehrete Girmay is a Public Health Analyst based in the U.S. and she remains with the Public Health Insight Podcast to continue our discussion about some of the impacts of social isolation and loneliness on health outcomes, their disproportionate impact on the senior population, and the need for a creative systems-thinking approach that prioritizes equity.
