Technology Applications in Rural Communities
Speaker – Col. (R) Wanda Wright
We will discuss the purpose, technology and implementation of a new initiative from The Arizona Department of Veterans' Services. The department, along with a non-profit organization, will expand Arizona's tribal population's access to telehealth, Veteran's benefits, and mental health services, by providing internet connectivity and equipment. Veterans living on reservations may have inherent difficulty accessing healthcare and benefits due to their rural proximity to services and transportation barriers. This project will allow them to access these benefits and services either in or near their home.
