Our Seniors Are Most Vulnerable – National Council On Aging’s Caution Campaign
The National Council on Aging is well aware that COVID -19 corona virus hits hardest on adults over 60 so the organization is launching a Public Service campaign to get honest and accurate information into the hands of the most vulnerable.
Here's the news release KIT received announcing the Urgent Campaign.
"For the past seventy years, the National Council on Aging (NCOA) has been a trusted partner and advocate for older Americans. The novel COVID-19 corona virus disproportionately affects adults over the age of 60 and NCOA is committed to keeping older adults informed and empowered about how to keep themselves and their loved ones safe and healthy during this viral epidemic. The potentially deadly effect of the corona virus on older Americans gives urgency to this PSA campaign to educate your community on best practices to protect themselves and loved ones from this virus. These PSAs link to the latest information from NCOA and other experts pertaining to seniors and COVID-19. We appreciate the opportunity to provide accurate, trustworthy and timely information on this public health threat to your local listeners and community through these PSAs."
