Gardner Amendment Expected to Improve Rural Health Care

gardnerYesterday, the House of Representatives unanimously passed an amendment introduced by Congressman Cory Gardner (CO-04) that would provide additional funding for Telemedicine and Distance Learning Services in rural areas. The services are critical to rural Colorado, where specialized medical treatments are not widely available.  Gardner says in rural Colorado, people often find themselves hundreds of miles from specialized medical services.  He says the amendment will give physicians in rural areas the tools they need to provide patients access to the best possible health care.
