Connected Care, the Office of Rural Health, and USAA joined forces on February 23 to present the Facebook Live event, “Bridging the Digital Divide.”
VA continues to use virtual tools and technologies to bring care closer to home for Veterans. Bridging the Digital Divide is a crucial part of that mission. This event explained how VA is bridging the technology and internet access gaps that many Veterans face, particularly those who live in rural communities.
Many thanks to our featured presenters: Leonie Heyworth, M.D., Office of Connected Care Director of Synchronous Telehealth, Thomas Klobucar, Ph.D., Office of Rural Health Executive Director, and Michael Kelly, USAA Assistant VP of Military Advocacy.
