“I look at telehealth as a god blessing for anyone with a special needs child – or any child.”
Without telehealth, Bobbi Hooks would have to drive her grandson Maurice, who has cerebral palsy, three hours to UC Davis for the regular neurology care he needs to control his seizures. But through Shasta Community Health Center’s telehealth program (supported by Partnership Health Plan), Maurice sees a neurologist at UC Davis virtually. See how telehealth makes it possible for Bobbi to care for the grandson she calls “the love of my life.”
Bobbi’s story shows the power of telehealth to bring high-quality specialty care within reach for Californians on Medi-Cal, especially those living in rural areas where there are fewer doctors.
