Senior Fellow Liz Seegert launches our new segment, HealthCetera. Health reporter Seegert regularly reports on seniors, technology, and the digital divide.

Older adults face unique obstacles in today’s technology dependent world.  Not only must they contend with vision, hearing, and other physical limitations, but for many, there are also psychological barriers to overcome. However, learning to use computers and other digital tools has been shown to have tremendous health benefits, in addition to practical ones.

senior-planet-logoSenior Fellow Liz Seegert reports on the country’s first technology focused learning center, just for seniors, to help them bridge the digital divide. Senior Planet Exploration Center is located at 127 West 25th Street, in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood.

So tune in Thursday, March 14 to WBAI, 99.5 FM (www.wbai.org) at 11:00 PM.

Healthstyles is sponsored by the Center for Health, Media & Policy at Hunter College, City University of New York.
