“Thank you Rose Brannon Phillips for scheduling an opportunity for Karen and I to visit with Michael Murphree to learn more about the healthcare challenges affecting Alabama’s rural communities and the Medical Advocacy and Outreach’s (MAO) use of telemedicine as a way of addressing healthcare. The potential devastating affect of current health reform options coming out of Congress, necessitates us being aware of the innovative methods that are being used successfully to address the vast healthcare needs of our communities.”
