Bethel-based telemedicine program held up as a model in DC

On Capitol Hill today, the Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corporation’s tele-medicine program was held up as an example of what high speed internet access can offer rural America.  YKHC president Gene Petola testified by video conference from Bethel before the Senate Commerce Committee this morning.  The Committee’s hearing was about the importance of broadband, or high speed internet, access in the United States.
