The global COVID-19 pandemic is hitting the older adult population the hardest, not only from a risk and mortality perspective, but also in the way it is exacerbating isolation and loneliness due to social distancing.
The Aging2.0 and Louisville Healthcare CEO Council (LHCC) teams are searching for innovations that help keep older adults connected to their communities, families, healthcare providers and vital information. This Global Innovation Search provides an opportunity for innovators around the world to showcase their product or service and compete for international exposure.
During the application period we received 130 submissions for innovations. The next round consisted of our Chapter Ambassadors reviewing these submissions and nominating a select number of innovations to advance to the voting round.
Now it's time to select ten finalists to move on to the Virtual Pitch Competition and we need your help! View the complete list of semifinalists below and at www.aging2.com/gis/vote, then vote for your favorite innovations once a day from July 6 to July 31. The ten innovators with the most public votes will then move on to the final round of competition: a virtual pitch competition judged by a panel of leaders from LHCC and Aging2.0. VOTE TODAY!
