Grant to help expand rural telemedicine
AP/Yahoo News, March 19, 2008
A $15.5 million grant from the Federal Communications Commission to the Center for Telehealth and Cybermedicine Research at the University of New Mexico will be used to design, build, operate and evaluate a broadband network largely serving rural areas that typically lack such technology. The grid of telehealth networks will support rural systems and connections to more than 500 sites, primarily in New Mexico and Arizona. Several Indian Health Service sites in Colorado, California, Nevada, Texas and Utah will also be served by the network.
