OHA, URI, BCBSRI partner to help bridge digital divide for older Rhode Islanders

As part of its digiAGE initiative, the Rhode Island Office of Healthy Aging (OHA) announced a partnership with the University of Rhode Island (URI) and Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island (BCBSRI) to connect more older adults to digital tools and help further fight the spread of COVID-19. The pilot program will equip residents living in areas hard hit by the crisis with smart devices, internet services, and related training to help them access online resources, work remotely, and virtually connect with family and friends.
