Regis College continues its Leadership Series on Health with an analysis of new developments in emergency medicine, technology and telehealth on Wednesday, November 13, 2013, from 6:30–8:30 p.m. in the Upper Student Union Lounge.

Technology has changed the practice of medicine and is used in many ways in a variety of settings. There is increased accessibility to physicians, nurses and other health care personnel by patients at home, and more availability of emergency room staff and first responders to disaster events. Come hear how the experts use technology in their practice and have them answer your questions.

Join moderator Penelope Glynn, PhD, RN, Dean, School of Nursing, Science and Health Professions and Associate Professor of Nursing, Regis College.
