View GSA's Webinar on Responding to Ageism During COVID-19
On April 21, GSA hosted "Reframing the Response to COVID-19: Applying Reframed Language to Counteract Ageism," a webinar that featured strategies for connecting COVID-19 and aging without perpetuating ageist tropes. The program is now archived on YouTube; the presentation slides can also be downloaded. The presenters offer ways that we can respond using empirically-supported narratives developed by th e FrameWorks Institute for the Reframing Aging Initiative and other projects to frame the public discourse on social and scientific issues.
