The Digital Sherpa Program
This Digital Sherpa program consists of a hands-on workshop to help cancer patients and care partners become more tech-savvy. A group of cancer patients or care partners who express a desire to become more competent in Internet and social media skills will meet with college students who have been specially trained as Internet “Sherpas” to offer them a workshop in these skills.
The students will offer help to find support and informational resources online and may include the following:
- Information about their disease and other health resources
- How to get help to become a self-advocate
- Where to connect with other patients
- How to become more tech-savvy
Please check out the video below that was produced from our pilot program.
