Is Telemedicine Coming to Your State?

Currently 19 state legislatures are debating bills to provide for or expand access to telemedicine services. These services can help save lives and reduce the impact of stroke.

If you live in one of these states, you can help make sure stroke patients and survivors in your state have access to telemedicine services. The Stroke Advocacy Network has made it easy for you to ask your state legislators to support telemedicine legislation. It only takes a minute to make a difference for the stroke community. Take action today!
