“What is telehealth? Simply put it is a way to connect a patient with their provider using a screen, a microphone, and the Internet. This is the year for telehealth in Wyoming. Our former governor Matt Mead, Dr. Jim Bush, Dr. David Wheeler and myself have a short video to explain telehealth in Wyoming. It’s worth taking two minutes of your time to check it out. It’s a bright time for the state of Wyoming!”
