The Epidemic of Loneliness–and How to Combat It (Wall Street Journal)

The Wall Street Journal published commentary by Paul Irving of the USC Leonard Davis School about the rise of loneliness for older adults and how it is a growing public health issue. “By recognizing the magnitude of the loneliness epidemic, confronting the realities and developing solutions, we can improve lives, communities and businesses. Instead of songs of loneliness, we’ll be humming a different tune, something like the Beatles lyrics, ‘I get by with a little help from my friends,'” Irving wrote.
