Georgetown University will move classroom instruction for all of our schools to virtual learning environments. Beginning Monday, March 16th, we are suspending all in-person, face-to-face, on-campus classroom instruction. Older adults or people with severe chronic medical conditions should prepare in advance for the possibility of a COVID-19 outbreak in their community. Watch this video from the CDC’s Deputy Director for Infectious Diseases, Dr. Jay C. Butler, to learn more about COVID-19 and older people.

In my previous role at AARP Foundation, I remember a call that came through our Housing Solutions Center from a 92-old widower who was at risk of losing his home to foreclosure. He had exhausted all financial resources in order to help his wife’s battle with cancer. When she passed away, he was on the verge of becoming homeless. There are limited options for people as they age and with limited income. My passion for aging is to influence interventions earlier in life that support the wealth and well-being of people so that they may live their best lives and not fear for the future.
