Taking health apps beyond the well-heeled

Dear Colleagues:

Yesterday, NPR broadcasted a piece by Barbara Feder Ostrov, The Challenge of Taking Health Apps Beyond the Well-Heeled.  She describes the disconnect between the people who need the most help and the technology apps designed to help them.  What do you think?  How do your students access health information?

Also mentioned:

Lack of Access to and use of Technology in Rural Areas.

Colleagues,

A wide-ranging discussion is taking place now in the English Language CoP on professional interests or needs that current LINCS groups may not address. I encourage you to take a look and join in.  (5461 views and 38 comments to date!)
