Learn how a rural library partnered with the University of North Texas Health Science Center to launch a pilot telehealth program. In rural communities, libraries often have the fastest internet connection in town together with digital literacy to assist users. Rural Americans face health inequities that result in worse health care outcomes than their peers in more populated areas. The presentation will include a discussion of logistics, and the role of health and digital literacy in telehealth.
