We are very excited to share that Ron Poropatich, MD will be delivering the Keynote Presentation on April 4th at the gpTRAC Regional Telehealth Forum. He will continue to focus on one of our main topics for this year’s event — the coming together of telemedicine and mHealth. It will be interesting to hear his perspective!
