Friday November 17 at 4pm in the Morrell Meeting Room
Join us for this author event. Dr. Nobel will discuss his new book, Project UnLonely: Healing Our Crisis of Disconnection, which offers hopeful insight into our new world of loneliness.
About Project UnLonely:
Even before 2020, chronic loneliness was a private experience of profound anguish that had become a public health crisis. Since then it has reached new heights. Loneliness assumes many forms, from enduring physical isolation to feeling rejected because of difference, and it can have devastating consequences for our physical and mental health. As the founder of Project UnLonely, Jeremy Nobel unpacks our personal and national experience of loneliness to discover its roots and take steps to find comfort and connection.
