As the baby boomer generation approaches retirement, there will be an increase in the older minority adult population in the next few years. Older minority adults have a marked prevalence of chronic health conditions. As the health care industry moves towards utilizing health information technology to manage specific chronic health conditions, few older minority adults currently utilize health information technology. Therefore, this outreach program has been developed to bridge the digital gap between older minority adults and health information technology. By bridging the gap, older minority adults can manage their health care and potentially live longer independent lives. The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal for the Angelus Plaza Senior Activity Center in Los Angeles, California, as a host agency for the outreach program. The Weingart Foundation was identified as the ideal funding source for this project. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
