Share Your Expertise and AGS COVID-19 Resources with Your Governor
We are facing an unprecedented public health emergency with the novel coronavirus which has disproportionately impacted older, medically complex individuals. Governors are taking varying approaches to how they are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and each state is unique in terms of the rate of new cases and deaths from the pandemic. One constant is that the toll on our older loved ones has brought into sharp focus the need for geriatrics health professionals to share their expertise, experience, and perspective with the goal of ensuring that the public health response reflects the needs of older Americans residing in a variety of settings. We created this advocacy campaign to make it easy for AGS members to offer their own expertise and share resources that offer guidance to states during the COVID-19 public health emergency.
Please offer your expertise to and share AGS resources with your Governor to ensure that the policies and programs that are being developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic reflect the needs of older Americans. After you enter your contact information, our suggested message will come up as the next page that you see.
