As part of a partnership between Comcast and Thomas Jefferson University, older adults are invited to take part in helping to design a new program focused on healthy aging and technology. Weekly sessions will be taking place throughout the summer in which seniors are invited to come and share their ideas and feedback on this new programming. This programming is being designed to help older adults to use technology as a way to manage their health.
Programs take place every Tuesday and Thursday from 1:00 – 2:30 for the remainder of July and August. Sessions will be held at the Comcast Collaboration Studio, 100 W. Oxford St., Philadelphia PA 19107. Round trip transportation is provided to and from the John C. Anderson Apartments, 251 S. 13th St. (depart at 12:30 p.m.).
No firm commitment is needed. Participants are invited to attend as many sessions as they like. The schedule for the rest of the summer is as follows:
July 19th & 21st: Searching online for providers
July 26th & 28th: Communicating with providers
August 2nd & 4th: Telehealth and video appointments
August 9th & 11th: Searching for health information
August 16th & 18th: Social media and online support
