Decades of evidence has accumulated pointing to widespread health impacts associated with social connection, or lack thereof. Despite this evidence, social connection has been widely assumed to be a personal issue primarily associated with emotional well-being, underappreciating the mental, cognitive, and physical health ramifications. While the pandemic raised awareness, it simultaneously revealed gaps in our understanding on what to do about it. Drawing upon her work with the US Surgeon General Advisory and the broader scientific literature, Dr. Holt-Lunstad will highlight the scope of why social connection is important at every stage of life and how to prepare for a healthier future.
