The NNLM South Central Region recently partnered with the Pottsboro Public Library to provide library patrons the technology to telehealth visits within the library. The project helps expand access and privacy to telemedicine for community members who otherwise might not have the resources. For more information, visit the award page.

For those interested in the implementation and practice of telemedicine, join the University of Arizona Telemedicine Program next month on Thursday, November 29th, 2020 for their  “2020 Mid-Year Rural Health Policy Roundup“. The free webinar will provide information about legislative policies and how they affect rural areas.
