According to Eloise Clayton of Turning Points, “Telehealth” is the term for using digital electronics like cell phones, mobile devices, and home computers to obtain up-to-date information and communicate on a virtual basis with doctors and other healthcare providers.
“For a special treat, we will be offering a drive-by meal pickup for all registered participants,” advised Clayton. For more information about the Zoom telecast or the free meal, contact Shanee Dunn 267-403-1984 (sdunn@turningpoints.PHMC.org)
