Panel discussion with Kira Bailey (Psychology) and Vicki DiLillo (Psychology) Social connectedness is critical for our health and well-being, and COVID-19 has presented some unique challenges to our ability to feel connected to one another. Social distancing and stay-at-home orders can feel like obstacles to social connectedness, but there are ways to use technology effectively to maintain, and even increase, our social connections. In this session, we will explore the science behind social connectedness and provide tips for staying connected to one another during the COVID-19 pandemic.
