Make Your Feelings on Telehealth in Wyoming Known

Last week, the Wyoming Broadband Advisory Council decided against including telehealth in its Wyoming State Broadband Enhancement Plan. This would effectively remove exploring legislation or grants to fund improvements to telehealth in Wyoming from the Broadband Advisory Council’s priorities. Now, The Wyoming Business Council’s board of directors wants to know if you agree with that stance and is taking public comment until April 26. 

AARP Wyoming asks that you take a moment or two to let the Business Council Board of Directors that telehealth is important to you. We know telehealth can help rural patients stay in local communities and receive services from specialists, eliminating the need for long travel. It can also reduce total healthcare costs by helping to diagnose health issues sooner. We think those things are good for Wyoming, not just AARP Wyoming members. We hope you do as well and will let the Business Council know how you feel.

Dear [Decision Maker],

I wanted to take a moment to thank you and the Broadband Advisory Council and yourself for working to improve broadband internet availability and quality in Wyoming.

I was disappointed to hear the Broadband Advisory Council has decided not to include its recommendations on telehealth in its upcoming State Broadband Enhancement Plan.

Here is why that is important to me.



Once again, we thank you for the work you are doing. Enhancing broadband in Wyoming will help our citizens stay healthier, and maintain contact with loved ones.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
