Telemedicine for College Students - Intro

Class. Laundry. Homework. Gym. Exams. It’s hard to do all this stuff when you’re sick. That’s why you can use telemedicine 24/7. It’s basically FaceTiming with a doctor.

What is Telemedicine?

Contact and receive live healthcare guidance from a U.S. board certified physician practically right away using a smartphone, tablet, or computer. If needed, the doctor can prescribe medication and send the prescription to your local pharmacy.
