PacWest LEND Programs bridge vast landmasses and waterways. These programs developed innovative strategies using technology to increase access for fellows and community professionals in rural areas. This panel session will describe the use of technologies such as video teleconferencing, telehealth, and the Internet to expand the reach of interprofessional offerings and to facilitate dynamic, interactive learning.
