Join Commit to Connect and engAGED at the annual National Summit to Increase Social Connections. The virtual conference will take place on May 14 from 1:00 to 4:00 PM ET and May 15 from 1:00 to 3:30 PM ET. This year, speakers and attendees will explore how to leverage technology to advance social connections for older adults and people with disabilities.  

The summit will bring together local, state, and national leaders from across sectors working to address social isolation and loneliness.  

Sessions will highlight innovative programs, resources, and tools to: 

  • increase the capacity of the aging and disability networks to promote social connections; 
  • increase awareness and availability of programs, services, interventions increasing social connection; and 
  • leverage technology to increase social connection. 
The virtual National Summit to Increase Social Connections is free and open to the public, but you must register in advance to participate! This event will include CART closed captioning and ASL interpretation. Recordings from both days will be shared on the Commit to Connect website following the event.
