Living Lonely: A three-part series that explores loneliness in America
Jeffrey D. Allred, Deseret News
Loneliness, as a medical matter, has begun to capture the attention of health experts worldwide, because it can kill. A growing body of research compares loneliness to documented health killers like smoking and obesity. Lois M. Collins tackles the issue in a three-part series:
Part 1: Seniors in Search of a Song, looks at the ramifications of loneliness for those who are elderly and what can be done about it.
Part 2: Unsettled Refugees tackles challenges that face people who arrive, sometimes reluctantly, from war-torn parts of the world. Many must learn a new language as well as adapt to a different way of life.
Part 3: When the Ill Are Invisible chronicles the isolation of entire families when a child is severely ill or disabled.
The project was undertaken as part of The California Endowment Health Journalism Fellowships, a program of USC’s Annenberg School of Journalism.
