Bill Sederburg, Marc Czarnecki and Karen Sanders will give an update on the WNC Broadband Project and focus on the importance of broadband to provide access to patient portals, telemedicine and other vital healthcare information.
WiFi access and high speed connectivity to the internet (broadband) are now considered vital, but many people, particularly older adults, do not have this kind of access.
The WNC Broadband Project is part of the N.C. Division of Broadband and Digital Equity to close the digital divide for the 1.1 million North Carolina households who lack access to high-speed internet, cannot afford it or do not have the skills needed to take advantage of the digital economy.
Learn more about the effort to provide this vital need from Dr. Bill Sederburg, chair of the WNC Broadband Project, Marc Czarnecki, Business Service Representative for the Land of Sky Regional Council, and Karen Sanders, RN Patient Advocate.
Fab Friday lectures are free and open to everyone and a great way to learn about an interesting blend of subjects.
