In an increasingly connected digital world, it is critical that Hoosiers of all ages have access to affordable, high-speed Internet.

To that end, AARP Indiana is teaming up with the Institute for Local Self-Reliance (ILSR) to host a Digital Equity Workshop on January 10th and 11th at IU Northwest in Gary, Ind.

The two-day seminar promises to build awareness and education around the topic, as well as take a close look at local solutions for the Gary community on day two.

“Access to high-speed Internet can be a game changer,” Emily Gorman, AARP Indiana Director of Community Outreach, said. “It can help older Hoosiers age-in-place by enabling their connection to friends, family members, doctors, and other important resources that are far away.”
