Looking for the impact of COVID-19 on older Americans, University of Michigan researchers Dr. Lindsay Kobayashi and Dr. Jessica Finlay surveyed nearly 7,000 adults between the ages of 55 and 100 to find out what they were most concerned about due to our current global health crisis.

They talk to WEMU's Lisa Barry about their findings and what can be done with that information to improve lives as the pandemic plays out moving forward.
