The Baby Boomers may have come into the world before the internet or the first personal computer, but we’ve proven ourselves to be adaptable, teachable, and most important of all, incurably curious about the exponentially growing technological world around us.

Indications of this already are apparent, especially in medical technology where the health needs of the Boomer generation are commanding a huge amount of attention and influence.
