Episode 2, Season 3
With all the quarantines and social distancing which have occurred this year, it is easy to understand why some people are experiencing loneliness. In this episode of Talking FACS, Dr. Jennifer Hunter sits down with Dr. Amy Kostelic and Dr. Alex Elswick to explore some of the effects that social isolation might have had on those in vulnerable populations or living in long term care situations. In addition, they share health benefits of creative ways to engage others socially.
