Healthcare professionals coming together to discuss how to bring telehealth to all
During the COVID-19 pandemic, individuals seeking healthcare faced a number of issues that hindered them from receiving the proper care. In particular, the ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) and Houseless populations were heavily affected.
Do you serve the ALICE and Houseless communities? Let’s convene to share experiences and discuss how we can implement telehealth appropriately for these vulnerable populations.
If you’d like to join the effort, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
