Talking with Your Doctor: Virtual is the New Reality
Monday, June 28, 2021, 10:00 a.m.
NightingaleNJ has responded to the healthcare crisis of Covid-19 by offering a new educational program for seniors. Due to their limited knowledge of the internet and lack of familiar face-to-face interactions with their care providers, the elder population is now severely impacted in their ability to navigate care. The almost exclusive use of Telehealth appointments can feel foreign to those who are not familiar with the internet, and it is our mission to support this population, giving them tools, tips, and reminders of how to best advocate for themselves during this unprecedented time.
