Healthcare & APEX Partners Care (HAP Care): Improving Access to Health Information for Minority Citizens who Lack Access to Library and Digital Services

The goal of the " Healthcare & APEX Partners Care (HAP Care): Improving Access to Health Information for Minority Citizens who Lack Access to Library and Digital Services" program is to improve public health in the Sweet Auburn District by increasing community members' access to information, aimed at enabling them to make more informed decisions about their health, especially where it relates to pandemics and chronic illnesses that plague minority and economically disadvantaged citizens. HAP Care is intended to focus primarily on minority and other underserved populations, such as Hispanic Americans, and supporting members of the healthcare community who care for vulnerable citizens. This project seeks to facilitate learning, and increase participants’ ability to use information and health-related resources more effectively in order to promote healthier behaviors, to prevent costly and debilitating illnesses, and improve health outcomes for citizens who are stricken with healthcare difficulties.
