Connect for your health

Connect for your health is a partnership between Hershey Public Library and the Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center to bring consumer health resources to those in our community who fall between the cracks of the digital divide. A series of virtual workshops will introduce attendees to the wealth of resources available online and in their community to support their health and wellness. This program will be targeted to those in our community who do not have in-home internet access. Attendees will be provided with a laptop and internet hot spot in order to attend. Workshops will cover evaluating online health information, health information in the news, and an introduction to MedLine Plus.
