Thrivers: Dealing with Loneliness
April 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pmFree
THRIVERS is a monthly discussion group for people impacted by HIV that relies on the personal expertise within our communities to help one another get the most out of life and to take advantage of the opportunities before us.
This month, we will be having a discussion about isolation and loneliness. After three years of living through the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve likely all experienced some isolation and feelings of loneliness. For some of us, we may have been dealing with loneliness long before the pandemic. We’ll talk about the ways that isolation and loneliness interact and how they impact our health and wellness. We’ll also talk about the ways that the pandemic has affected our social connectedness. Most importantly, we’ll explore ways that we can address isolation and loneliness and develop stronger social connections with others.
Come thrive with us!
Anyone attending Thrivers in person will need to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination, including the most recent (Bivalent) booster. A vaccination record, vaccine card, or a picture of the card or vaccine record will be required. All attendees will be expected to remain masked throughout the program. Anyone who is unvaccinated or who still prefers to participate remotely will have the option of participating in the program via Zoom or by phone.
*We are not currently serving the congregate meal at the end of Thrivers programs. Instead, we will be giving out $10 grocery store gift cards. You must arrive by 12:15 and stay for the entire program in order to receive the gift card. Individuals participating by phone or Zoom will be able to pick up their gift card at William Way the Monday after the program.
