Powers attorneys Paul Moorehead and Kathleen Hatfield authored an opinion piece in Law360 on the benefits of telehealth for tribal communities.

In the piece, Moorehead and Hatfield discuss the ways in which telehealth can improve access to health care for Indian tribal communities, as well as the various funding opportunities for tribal telehealth that are currently available, including those from recent COVID-19 response bills.

The piece follows a recent webinar hosted by Powers on telehealth funding opportunities for Indian tribes.
