AARP Georgia will be hosting a local seminar on how anyone can use technology to consult medical professionals and receive diagnoses without leaving the comfort of home.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 7, AARP and their partners Global Partnership for Telehealth, HomeTown Health and Mercer University School of Medicine will be featured in a free informative panel on the growing field of Telehealth. The event will be hosted at the Forsyth Conference Center at Lanier Technical College, 3410 Ronald Reagan Blvd. in Cumming.

According to a news release from AARP Georgia, telehealth is the practice of connecting with a healthcare professional from a smartphone, tablet or other computer device, whether it be for convenience or ease of access.

 “Experts will explain the definition of telehealth and share how technologies, such as personal computers and smartphones, have the potential to transform when, where and how health care is received,” the release stated. 

The release states that lunch will be provided at this event, but registration is required due to the limited seating.

For registration and more information, call (877) 926-8300.
