Having any sort of technical problem with your computer? If you're over 60, Cornell Tech students are waiting and eager to help. Here's their message for Roosevelt Islanders...

Community Announcement from Cornell Tech

Hello Roosevelt Islanders,

We hope you are well and taking care of yourselves during this challenging time.

As many of you know, our students are a very talented group who are also generous with their time and skills! A number of our students are interested in leveraging their tech skills to provide virtual tech assistance to Roosevelt Islanders who are 60+ and might need some help at this time.



One of our students has already reached out to a few of our 60+ residents who took him up on his offer to help them with their tech needs ranging from signing up for their prescriptions, changing their phone settings, etc. Thanks to Google hangouts and other video conferencing platforms, he was able to help remotely and provide the assistance they need.

Feel free to respond to me (Jane.Swanson@cornell.edu) with your name, phone number and a description of the type of help you need. We will do our best to match you with the student volunteer who can best address your need(s).

Take care.

Jane Swanson: Jane.Swanson@cornell.edu
