The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way physicians are seeing healthy patients these days. New Canaan Library is pleased to present a live webinar by Dr. Larry Leibowitz, joined by Michael Turpin, Executive Vice President at USI Insurance Services, who will explore the topic and seek to answer the question of whether telehealth is here to stay. The webinar is presented on Tuesday, July 14th at 6:30pm EST.
Dr. Leibowitz will craft his presentation around attendees’ questions; he encourages the submission of questions prior to the event through the listing on the Library’s calendar, https://newcanaanlibrary.org/calendar/month/2020-07/. Zoom sign in information is provided upon registration.
Through the power of technology, most routine medical appointments can be carried out without setting foot in a medical office. And, when an in-person visit is required, medical offices are taking new, necessary precautions to keep everyone safe. Dr. Leibowitz will discuss how he structures telehealth visits and the effectiveness of telehealth in comparison to in-person visits.
