On September 30 and October 1, 2015, the Federal Communications Commission's Connect2Health Task Force will travel to Miami and Jacksonville, Florida, to highlight how broadband-enabled health technologies can transform health and care for seniors, children and people with disabilities. The scheduled policy summit, consumer event and site visits are part of the Task Force's "Beyond the Beltway Series" to reach out broadly about the transformative power of broadband-enabled solutions and next-generation communications technologies to improve access to health and care services throughout the country, especially in rural and underserved areas.
While in Florida, FCC leadership and C2H Task Force members will visit two sophisticated technology centers: The Telehealth Command Center at Nicklaus Children's Hospital and the Healthspot-Florida Blue Retail Center.
The FCC will partner with the Mayo Clinic and AARP for several key events in Miami and Jacksonville featuring FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler, FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn, senior executives from AARP Florida, Univision's Dr. Juan Rivera, Dr. Steve Ommen, Head of Connected Care for the Mayo Clinic, and the Connect2HealthFCC Task Force.
