The Massachusetts Healthy Aging Collaborative is pleased to be part of two upcoming virtual events – one with the John A. Hartford Foundation and Milbank Memorial Fund and the other co-hosted with the Executive Office of Elder Affairs (EOEA) and Babson College.
Technology access is essential for our physical and emotional health, often acting as the gateway to our lives for connection, information, healthcare, and work during COVID-19.
The importance of technology and the ability to both access and utilize that technology has been significantly elevated during the pandemic – especially for older adults.
Join MHAC, EOEA and Babson College for a presentation that will feature innovations and insights on how to address the myriad of issues and opportunities around technology and healthy aging.
