Track Your Health Week: Get free help with your technology

September 6 2017 by North Richmond Community Health

Are you interested in technology and how it can help you with your health?

North Richmond Community Health is hosting a free helpdesk and a range of education sessions from Monday 11 September to Friday 15 September 2017.

At the free pop up helpdesk, a team of students and volunteers will be available to answer any questions you have about your phone. You can ask for advice about how to use your phone to search for health information, how to install apps, and how to use your phone to stay in touch with your friends and family.

Here are just a few ways you can use your phone to help manage your health:

  • planning conception
  • tracking your pregnancy
  • make video appointments with health professionals
  • monitor diabetes
  • improve your diet
  • get more active
