AoU Community Engagement 258 - Breaking the Barriers with Healthier Lifestyles: Advocate and Communicate with Low-Income Minority Students and Community Learners

Restored Generation is an outreach organization focused on enriching and educating the underserved population. The outreach program will support minorities from low-income households and provide the learners with the understanding of digital health literacy. For example, the recipients could be African American, Hispanics, or other cultural backgrounds. The events will collaborate and connect with the youth and their families to better understand how to have a healthier, more productive lifestyle. The program will access MedlinePlus resources that are supported by the National Institutes of Health and the National Network of the Library of Medicine. The program will engage the community to learn how to access their health information resources using the technology devices. In the process, the community will need Internet Service, Wifi hotspot devices, laptops, and iPads to retrieve the latest health information. The tools will provide them to access reliable health related topics and enable them to become effective digital learners.
