As rural areas struggle with access to pediatric care and sub-specialists, telemedicine is increasingly becoming a fantastic tool leveraged by rural healthcare organizations across the nation. This webinar will shed some light on different ways telemedicine is already being leveraged to deliver quality and timely pediatric care to children in rural communities.

Please join our featured presenters Dr. David McSwain, MPH from MUSC Center for Telehealth and Kristin Smith, RN, BSN from the Community Health Center of Branch County. Each of them will share details of their pediatric telemedicine programs and how they achieved such positive healthcare outcomes and successes.
