(COVID response/Access/Health Equity)

Peering through a health equity lens, the TelemEDucation program was developed in 2020 in response to the global pandemic with the goal of significantly improving patients’ and care partners’ familiarity with remote access to healthcare. The program focuses on educating patients on the practical usage of telemedicine tools that humanize the experience with patients and providers.

Now that telemedicine has more broad application, the TelemEDucation 2.0 program expands on this foundation by engaging program participants in: keeping telemedicine in your toolbox post-Covid; how and why?, an exploration of the digital health landscape, and mobile-optimized tools for connecting to specialized cancer care. https://bit.ly/3psUdVi
