Thank you for joining us!

On Friday, November 8th, 2019, LBFE brought together eight experts in aging to explore the impact and alleviation of elder loneliness locally and globally at the first-ever End Loneliness Symposium. Attendees from across the country and around the world joined us to learn more about aging — and living — with more connection to each other and ourselves.

We’re proud to host the End Loneliness Symposium once again on April 4th, 2023! Join us as we explore how creativity and engagement transform the lives of older people aging alone. Learn more about the event and our esteemed speakers here, and register to attend on-site or online below.
