As part of this grant, the AAP is launching a program that will provide small stipends to practices serving pediatric patients and families. The stipend program will offer $5,000 to community-based practices that serve rural areas (with an emphasis on underserved populations in those areas) and are new to telehealth implementation. The program will support practices with the implementation of telehealth and distance care through participation in a 6-month virtual learning community. Applicants can include practices with non-pediatrician physicians, such as pediatric nurse practitioners and family physicians. See HERE for more information.
