Washington, D.C. – Today U.S. Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) announced that $1,188,108 will be awarded to the CAMC Health Education and Research Institute, Inc., Roane County School District and Pocahontas County Board of Education. This funding will establish a new telemedicine network that will connect clinical specialists to rural hospitals in central and southern West Virginia and medical and educational experts to school districts in rural communities.
“Through telecommunications, West Virginians living in rural communities will now have access to healthcare and educational services they deserve,” Senator Manchin said. “I’m glad this funding will help CAMC Health Education and Research Institute, the Roane County School District and the Pocahontas County Board of Education expand these important services to those living in rural areas.”
“West Virginians living in small, hard-to-reach communities throughout the state often find it difficult to access quality care due to a lack of resources,” said Senator Capito. “I am pleased to support efforts that make it easier for our medical and educational experts to expand their services to rural communities, so residents are able to receive the quality services they deserve.”
