Good afternoon. My name is Dr. Angela Michelide. I am the Vice President of Programs and Education at the American College of Preventive Medicine.
I'm pleased to serve as your moderator today for this Grand Rounds on telehealth and telemedicine related to the Joint Incentive Fund Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Project.
ACPM is tremendously grateful to be able to partner with the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Defense on this exciting initiative.
The American College of Preventive Medicine is a professional medical society of more than 2,000 physicians dedicated to improving the health and quality of life of individuals,
families, communities, and populations through disease prevention and health promotion.
Our members are licensed medical doctors who possess expertise in a broad range of healthcare skills, including biostatistics, epidemiology,
management of health organizations, research, and the practice of prevention in clinical settings.
They work in a variety of workplaces, including hospitals, government at the local, state, and national levels, the military, laboratories, business, and academia.
Before we begin, I have a few housekeeping notes. The audience has been placed in listen-only mode.
We will post a recording of this webinar in the ACPM Learning Management System on our website in a few days.
We invite you to please type questions in the chat box throughout the webinar presentations, and we'll respond to them at the middle and towards the end of the session.
And we will be emailing you a brief feedback survey after the webinar, so please respond so that we can improve our offerings and be able to attract additional topics and speakers.
