Topic: Telehealth: How Law Reform Can Spur Its Adoption

Wednesday, October 21, 2020, 9:00-10:00 am Pacific Standard Time via WebEx

Registration is required. WebEx Conference call information will be sent upon registration.

Recent developments in telehealth technologies suggest great potential for chronic care management, mental health services, and care delivery in the home-all of which should be particularly impactful for an aging population with physical and cognitive limitations. While this alignment of technological capacity and market demand is promising, legal barriers remain for telehealth operators to scale up across large geographic areas.
Join us for a discussion on how federal and state law can be reformed to enable greater telehealth utilization.

Topic: Rural Nevada's Responses to COVID-19 & Social Isolation: Lessons from White Pine County, NV

Tuesday June 23, 2020, 12:00 - 1:00 pm via WebEx

Experts say rural areas have older populations that are less healthy and have fewer medical facilities than urban and suburban regions. The 15 percent of people in the United States who live in rural areas are largely a higher-risk population that’s particularly vulnerable to serious outcomes with COVID-19. In addition, many people in rural areas live 30 or more miles away from the nearest hospital.
The June 23rd NIHAN Webinar presents a review of strategies implemented by White Pine County, NV in mitigation efforts against COVID-19 pandemic. It demonstrates individual county approach and coordination with State of Nevada.
