How Healthy Aging Data Report Can Contribute to Fight Against COVID-19 in Massachusetts

Apr 22, 2020

Thanks to the research team at UMass-Boston’s Gerontology Institute with support from the Tufts Health Plan Foundation, the public can access the Healthy Aging Data Report with community profiles on all 351 cities and towns in the state on the Massachusetts Healthy Aging Collaborative website.

Now, that research team developed additional data to aid local leaders as well as Age-and Dementia Friendly coalitions in addressing COVID-19.

See the UMass Gerontology Institute blog post here that includes a Q&A with UMass Professors Beth Dugan and Nina Silverstein along with post-doctoral assistant Chae Man (Jay) Lee about the report and how it could contribute to a statewide and local response.
