Kennedy Krieger Institute launched a Telemedicine clinic in partnership with Atlantic General Hospital, Berlin, MD which is on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, in Dec 2013. The aim of the Clinic is to serve a rural and underserved population who have concerns about their child's development. Dr. Paul Lipkin and Dr. Deepa Menon from Kennedy Krieger Institute have twice monthly clinics and have been able to conduct neurodevelopmental initial evaluation and testing on the children.  They have been able to connect patients and families to resources in their local area, as well as provide referrals for further evaluations at KKI. To read more about the program, click here.
