Telehealth Project

Study GroupThe AETC Capitol Region Telehealth Project at the Howard University College of Medicine served as a resource and training portal for health professionals and practices in their delivery of culturally and linguistically competent services to patients at high risk for or who have HIV/AIDS and/or co-infections.
