‘SAGE Health Storylines’ app gets user-friendly updates

LGBT Weekly

NEW YORK, N.Y. —  Today, National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day, SAGE announces updates to its SAGE Health Storylines app, which helps older adults and their caregivers make better daily health decisions.

“This innovative app is incredibly user-friendly in order to better help older LGBT people nationwide who are living with HIV and AIDS,” says Diosdado Gica, the Chief Program Officer at SAGE, the nation’s largest and oldest organization serving lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender elders. “Since more than 50 percent of people living with HIV and AIDS are older than 50, we see this app as a way for LGBT elders to live more freely.”

Created in partnership with Self Care Catalysts, the app has been further enhanced to improve functionality and to offer more flexibility to older LGBT people living with HIV and AIDS. The app comes with a variety of tools, including medication, mood, and symptom trackers. These allow users to build a complete health profile as well as giving them the ability to share information safely and securely with their caregivers and healthcare providers.
