Portable Health Information Kiosk
The primary goal of this project is to assist in the delivery of improved health information to the residents of Martha’s Vineyard, focusing primarily on seniors and their caregivers.
The project will provide funding to purchase and program a portable health information kiosk to be located primarily in the West Tisbury Library. This kiosk will be transported off site for programs provided at Island Senior Centers, other Island libraries and other program sites. This touch screen kiosk will provide information in English and Brazilian Portuguese from vetted medical databases on such topical health issues as addiction, nutrition, diet and exercise, cancer, mental illness, alcoholism, dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and tick-borne diseases.
This project will serve as a beta testing site for the introduction of a health information kiosk at the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital.
