Researchers at UC Davis’ Healthy Aging in a Digital World and at CITRIS (Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society) are launching today “Lighthouse for Older Adults” (Lighthouse), a public-private initiative to pilot access to telehealth and internet services to low-income seniors.

Lighthouse aims to equip older adult residents of affordable housing communities with internet access, telehealth tools and digital literacy skills they need to access information, health care services, and social connections.
