About The Project

We propose to demonstrate an intervention that is designed to encourage older adults in the Mantua Powelton neighborhood to become more active participants in both their own and their family’s health management by providing an accessible “on ramp” to credible and authoritative health information using whatever combination of technology is most prevalent, accessible, and comfortable for our target audience. This study builds on prior research conducted at the 11th Street Health Center. The work will be carried out in collaboration with the University Libraries and the Dornsife Center.
