Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic all of us have experienced the changing nature of social connections, and many of us have gained personal insight into what it means to be socially isolated, lonely, or both. These are not new concepts that have resulted from the pandemic. However, the pandemic has likely made worse our experiences of social isolation and loneliness and challenged our beliefs about who is socially isolated and lonely. This is the first of a four-part national webinar series on research related to social isolation and loneliness for people with disabilities hosted by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR).
