GPT Recommended by Georgia Governor’s Office for BTOP Grant

GPT received a “Highly Recommended” priority along with a letter of recommendation for the State of Georgia Office of the Govenor for the second round of the Technologies Opportunity Program. If awarded the near $2.5 million grant, The TeleConnect GA for Better Health program will utilize telemedicine, broadband adoption, and an awareness campaign to address declining health of rural Georgians. Key public and private sector stakeholders will join hands to improve access to 400,932 poor and underserved in 91 county areas, create 10 new jobs, and promote broadband demand and sustainability through the expanded GPT telehealth network.
