The practice and delivery of health care is changing with an emphasis on improving quality, safety, efficiency and access to care. Telemedicine can help you achieve these goals! The Arizona Telemedicine Program and Southwest Telehealth Resource Center invite you to a free one-hour CME webinar on the implementation and practice of telemedicine.

Envenomations, intoxications and bites in the Southwest. More common than you think! What to do.
