BOISE, Idaho — AARP Idaho along with Idaho Governor Brad Little and health experts will host a statewide telephone town hall to provide updated information and answer questions regarding the coronavirus in Idaho. The call will be moderated by Lupe Wissel, AARP Idaho state director.

The hour-long conversation begins at 12 p.m. on March 24. Participants can join by dialing toll-free 866-767-0637 or register in advance by visiting https://vekeo.com/aarpidaho/. The discussion will also be streaming live at www.facebook.com/aarpidaho.

This is an interactive forum and participants are encouraged to call and speak directly with the Governor. Questions may also be submitted ahead of time via email at aarpid@aarp.org.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), older adults and people with underlying health conditions, like heart disease, lung disease and diabetes, are about twice as likely to develop serious outcomes than younger, healthier people.

This important call is available for anyone regardless if they are an AARP member or not.
