AGING MATTERS radio program
09/22/2020 to 09/22/20202701-C Wilson Blvd, Arlington, VA 22201
Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, many older adults have relied on technology more than usual. For many, it's a main source of communication – Zoom meetings, photo exchanges on FaceTime, and family conversations on Facebook. Not every older adult, however, has access to or is able to use these tools to support daily living and well being at home. On AGING MATTERS this Tuesday, Sept 22 at 2:00 pm on WERA-LP 96.7 FM, host Cheryl Beversdorf talks with Diane Murphy, PhD, Director, School of Technology and Innovation, Marymount University, about the digital divide, difficulties of digital technology for older adults, and how it can benefit and enhance their lives during COVID-19.
