October 30, 2020 - "All About TeleHealth" presented by Computer Club of Rossmoor.  YouTube video

All About TeleHealth: The advent of Covid-19 has spurred explosive use of TeleHealth for getting medical attention and advice. Many patients now find it routine to “visit” their doctor or medical practitioner via a smartphone, tablet or computer. Others, however, may be skeptical of the concept or have concerns about how to use the requisite technology. Whether you’re an experienced user of TeleHealth or have never engaged in a computer-facilitated “house call,” the Computer Club of Rossmoor's October TechTogether will be of interest.  Presentation links and materials
