Gov. Northam promotes telehealth as reason for needing to expand broadband service
SOUTH BOSTON, Va. Walking the halls of the Pittsylvania/Danville Health Department Thursday afternoon, Gov. Ralph Northam was pleased to see the health department is well-versed in the use of telehealth. We know its easier and its healthier for individuals to receive a lot of their care through telehealth, said Northam. Ralph Northam (right) talks with Pittsylvania-Danville Health District Director Dr. Scott Spillman after taking a look at the telehealth capabilities at the district's health department. Expanding broadband service across the commonwealth is something he hopes to be able to use what he calls some one-time spending in the states budget to continue.
