Seniors in El Paso Learn about Health Technology from Department of Public Health

As part of their Health Week initiative, the El Paso Department of Public Health (DPH) is hosting a technology and innovation event at the Fabens Senior Center. The event aims to educate seniors on new technology tools available to help them use their cell phones for health-related purposes.

Rosalyn Negron, a public health education and prevention specialist with the City of El Paso, emphasized the importance of raising awareness and providing access to technology features for the older generation. With the goal of teaching seniors how to track physical activity, add emergency contacts, and set up automatic 911 calls in case of emergencies, eight educators will be on hand to assist and answer any questions during the session.

The session will be divided into two groups – one for seniors with iOS phones and one for those without Apple phones. The event is set to kick off at 10:00 a.m. at the Fabens Senior Center, offering valuable information and resources to help reduce health disparities in El Paso communities.

Funded by the DPH’s CDC Health Equity Grant, this event is just one way that the department is working to cover the entire El Paso County and provide valuable resources and classes for the community. More information and resources can be found on the DPH website.
