Point B

Join us for this one-time workshop for HIV+ individuals to access health referrals and benefit information via the Internet.  Critical Path trainers will provide an online tour of services available to PLWHA in Philadelphia and make a referral for a service such as medical, dental, or housing.  You will also learn how to check your benefits eligibility online as well as how to access health information on your smartphone.  NO COMPUTER EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY.

 

You need a Ryan White card to enroll in this class.  If you do not have one, we can tell you how to get one when you call.

Workshops are scheduled on an on-going basis.  To enroll, call Shanté at 215-985-4448 x279.
