"Medical Missions for Children does truly worthy work and much of this work is done with the aid of telemedicine," said Steven Normandin, president of AMD Global Telemedicine. "MMC has created an effective and vital network that uses telemedicine to help critically ill children all over the world."
At the recent 13th Annual International meeting of the American Telemedicine Association (ATA), AMD Telemedicine presented Medical Missions for Children (MMC), an organization committed to improving the health of children in underserved communities around the world, with the ATA President's Award.
Steven Normandin, President of AMD Telemedicine, the leading provider of telemedicine hardware and software solutions with over 5000 installations in more than 72 countries and sponsor of the ATA President's Award, made the presentation during the annual ATA conference, this year being held in Seattle, Washington.
