Digital Inclusion
The COVID-19 pandemic opened the eyes of many to the digital and health inequities in rural and underserved communities. This gave PCC the opportunity to launch Palmetto Connect, a digital inclusion program for South Carolinians.
Digital Inclusion Expansion in Bamberg County
PCC trained 19 Bamberg County residents this week who are now chromebook-ready! All participants received six hours of Palmetto Connect’s Beginner Training Curriculum. Many of them are excited about using the internet, email, telehealth (virtual health care), Zoom, and more!
