Community programs that serve millions of older adults across the country have been forced to cancel in-person physical activity and wellness programming due to the coronavirus. As a result, older adults are spending more time at home, are less active, and more socially isolated. Building on their existing networks, programs across the country have adapted their outreach to help older adults remain active and healthy at home. This webinar will include a panel of representatives from national community-based organizations who will share various ways they have adapted to support older adults at home
Note: You will receive a certificate for 1.5 contact hours only. We do not offer CEUS from any specific state. However, can contact your state and submit a request for CEU approval. This is assuming your state awarded CEUs for the small number of contact hour provided by this webinar.
