In this episode of Better Edge, Anna Liggett, MD, assistant professor of Geriatric Medicine, discusses the delicate balance many geriatricians are facing between keeping seniors safe and managing social isolation in long-term care facilities. She shares recommendations and details of a new initiative her team is launching to pair medical students and seniors in underserved areas together for phone conversations to help combat social isolation.
