Covid-19 and Addiction: The Science of Relapse in a Pandemic

October 2, 2020

COVID-19 has generated a public health crisis that affects every household. And it's exacerbating another widespread public health crisis that already was ongoing when the pandemic arrived: addiction and other mental health problems. During the pandemic, complications from substance use, and overdose deaths, have been increasing even faster than before. At the same time, it has become more difficult to access the treatments that can help curb some of the effects of addictive drugs. University of Michigan physician-researcher Jonathan Morrow, MD, PhD, will explain some of the science that links COVID-19 to addiction. Armed with this knowledge, we can identify…

LHS Collaboratory-LHS as a Driver of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

September 21, 2020

Healthcare and health remain unconscionably inequitable. This year, the disproportionate toll the COVID-19 pandemic has taken on those historically least well-served by our health system, has highlighted the pressing societal challenge of health disparities. Beyond simply striving to do no harm, Learning Health Systems (LHSs) have the potential to serve as forces for justice in healthcare and health; indeed, they can be powerful drivers of diversity, equity, and inclusion. LHSs are anchored in multi-stakeholder consensus Core Values that explicitly incorporate principles such as inclusiveness, transparency, and accessibility. Their proximal goal is "to efficiently and equitably serve the learning needs of…

Older Adults, Tech Use, and Social Well-Being during COVID-19 and Beyond

September 21, 2020

Nearly one in three older adults in the U.S. experienced some form of loneliness in 2019. The COVID-19 pandemic significantly restricted older adults’ (ages 65+) in-person social interactions, likely increasing loneliness among this demographic. Due to these restrictions, older adults have started to change their relationships with technology to communicate with family and friends at a distance using smartphones and computers. However, these technologies may not be accessible for all older adults. Voice-based technologies such as Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant can be more accessible to those with motor challenges or vision loss/blindness, yet have not been studied in-depth for…
