952 Winter 2019 Taking Charge of Your Health Using Digital Tools, and Having Fun Doing It!
Wednesday, 2:15–3:40, Jan. 23
Fairfax Lord of Life
Instructor: Cynthia Thomas Hazard
The more we feel in control of our health, the better the outcomes. This course provides an overview of simple digital technologies (portals, Medicare Blue Button, disease management and wellness "apps") and offers guidance on how and why to leverage them for better health. We will review the basics, as well as sample some newer creative digital technologies. The goal is to provide learners with a sense of confidence in their own abilities to get better connected to their health and empowered to explore the benefits that digital healthcare technologies can provide.
