Covid-19 has brought much attention to telehealth as an emerging, alternative health delivery system. For many of our travelers, telehealth can be a viable, even preferred, option for the delivery of pre and post travel services. Whether you are brand new to telehealth, thinking about adding telehealth to your current in-person service, or just interested in knowing what are current telehealth issues and opportunities in our specialty, you won't want to miss this important and timely topic.

Webinar Objectives:

At the completion of this webinar, the learner will be able to:

1. List two resources for providing high quality telehealth services.

2. Identify an obstacle to telehealth services that is less of an obstacle post-pandemic.

3.Describe three advantages of telehealth for patients.
