M-SEARCH BYOD Project Mobile Systems Education and Resources for Consumer Health Bring Your Own Device

The proposed initiative, MSEARCH BYOD, will provide trainings for patrons and staff members at three Baker-Ripley Neighbor Center senior locations. NNLM resources that will be used in the training are MedlinePlus.gov, The National Institute on Aging, and NIHs Go4Life websites. Participants will be asked to bring their personal smartphone or mobile tablet devices if available to the trainings. Participants who cannot bring a mobile device to the training will be provided a mobile tablet device for use during each class. Participants will acquire basic mobile device user skills and learn to utilize the available tools on selected NNLM websites. Center staff will participate in all trainings and provide support to the 89 after the project is concluded. Partners include Baker - Ripley Neighbor Centers and Cizik School of Nursing at UT Health.
