The COVID-19 pandemic has touched everyone, but the youngest and oldest among us are being disproportionately affected. This webinar explored how these two groups are being impacted by the pandemic – older adults, from a mortality and morbidity perspective, and youth due to a disruption of childcare and education. The webinar addressed overarching concerns, including nutrition and health care access, and how philanthropy can help meet these needs. Regine Webster from the Center for Disaster Philanthropy moderated the discussion.
