T-Mobile Changemaker students innovating for good

Techstination feature for Wednesday, August 3, 2022

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.     In the midst of the Covid pandemic…two high school age cousins in Louisville, Kentucky…offered to help their grandparents make a vaccination appointment online.   Then…says Amelie Beck…

“It was kind of an issue throughout the whole senior citizen, elderly community that it was really hard to just log online”

Now the concept…which they call MedTechConnect…has spread to other states and Amelie and her cousin Jacqueline Teague were among a group of young people who were invited to spend time and get support at T-Mobile headquarters.  They are among this year’s crop of Changemakers...

“So, our goal from here is to make accessing medicine online and visiting with your doctor just like accessible for everyone.”
