The COVID-19 pandemic required everyone to practice social distancing, but for many, this led to an increase in both general loneliness and total social isolation. In this presentation, Dr. Hughes will discuss the differences between the two labels, trends across time, and the differences by age, gender, and other demographics, as well as strategies to reduce isolation and loneliness.
