UETN provides Telehealth Kits to Rural Schools
UETN will supply 175 telehealth kits to Title 1 schools in rural Utah and schools who had a high need due to geography. Utah's school nurses in rural districts are stretched thin. So to increase their ability to see students, UETN is sending a kit of telehealth digital tools so that nurses and administrators can conduct basic health exams remotely.
