Milena Miller talks with Deborah Meyer and Gina Wilberger

On this edition of Conversations from Studio B, host Milena Miller talks with Deborah Meyer and Gina Wilberger of Appalachian Community Visiting Nurses, Hospice and Health Services.

Miller, Meyer and Wilberger discuss Appalachian Community Visiting Nurses’ new telehealth program.

“With the devices that we have, people are measuring their weight, blood pressure, oxygen saturation and their fasting blood sugars. Everything is done wirelessly so that when they are at home checking these things, I’m basically at the computer on the Internet”, says Wilberger.
