Craig County Outreach Program
In collaboration with the students and staff of Craig County School System in New Castle, VA the Office of Telemedicine developed a unique outreach program funded by a generous donation from the WestWind Foundation. The schools and the local health clinic, Craig County Health Clinic, are equipped with videoconferencing technologies to help better serve their community.
The Craig County Outreach Program provides easier access to medical care and health related programs for all of its citizens. Through the health and safety related presentations, we hope to help broaden their knowledge of a variety of topics including physical activity, nutrition, eating disorders, tobacco use, substance abuse, peer pressure and cyber bullying. These presentations are broadcasted live from the Office of Telemedicine to the Craig County auditorium, where the students and teachers can interact with the guest speaker.
If you would like to participate in the outreach program, please contact the Office of Telemedicine at 434-924-5470 or toll-free at 1-855-TMEDUVA (1-855-863-3882).
