What are important things to consider before incorporating technology into a health program?

As you think about this, consider:

  • your own experiences using technology in your work, particularly any experiences related to community engagement.

  • How do you use of technology in your own life? How does technology impact the information you receive, how you communicate, and so on?

We invite you to share your thoughts and predictions in the discussion.
