Two Lerner Graduate Fellows, Claire Pendergrast and Mary (Emmy) Helander, were interviewed on WAER (Syracuse’s NPR affiliate station) on April 9 as part of the Syracuse Speaks series. The interviewed covered how COVID-19 has impacted health and social well being among older adults and some tips for how to keep older adults safe and healthy during this challenging and uncertain time.
