This panel will make the case for consideration of digital skills and access as social determinants of health.  Panelists will examine different approaches to identifying and addressing digital inclusion gaps in health care and community settings. The needs of rural and urban WIC participants will be highlighted, and examples will be presented of adult literacy organization partnerships and of a comprehensive health-system wide effort to engage both hospitalized and clinic patients in digital health technology.
