A big question is floating around the broadband space right now: How do we make the most of our nation’s historic investment in closing the digital divide? One key opportunity will be leveraging schools, libraries, and other community anchor institutions. The Schools, Health & Libraries Broadband (SHLB) Coalition and the Wireless Future Project at New America’s Open Technology Institute are partnering to release new research which finds that extending anchor institutions’ broadband networks off-campus has both social and economic advantages.

Join us for the official release of this critical new economic study. Author Dr. Raul Katz will present his findings. Additionally, you’ll hear directly from anchor institution representatives - profiled in a companion collection of case studies of school and community networks - about how they’re deploying wireless ‘to and through’ anchors to connect their surrounding communities.

Telehealth has emerged as a critical tool for healthcare providers and their patients, especially since the onset of COVID-19. The marketplace is changing: Healthcare providers are shifting their operations to accommodate high telehealth demand, and navigating pay discrepancies between in-person and virtual visits, for starters. And of course, the increase in demand means that healthcare institutions need additional bandwidth. Programs like the Connected Care Pilot, the COVID-19 Telehealth Program, and the Rural Health Care Program are supposed to address this need, but are they doing so effectively? Join SHLB’s next webinar to explore how broadband programs can better support the new realities of the telehealth marketplace.

Meet the Experts

  • Gregrey Hall, director of telehealth IT, Center for Telehealth, University of Mississippi Medical Center
  • Brian Scarpelli, senior global policy counsel, ACT | The App Association/Connected Health Initiative
  • Jennifer Stoll, executive vice president, external affairs, OCHIN
  • Moderator: John Windhausen, executive director, SHLB Coalition
