Jay Sanders

Dr. Jay Sanders – CapSci2010 Saturday Luncheon Talk

Dr. Jay Sanders is known as the “Father of Telemedicine”. The American Medical Association Journal of Ethics has this to say about him. “If any single physician’s name has become synonymous with the nascent field of telemedicine, it is that of Dr. Jay Sanders. Like any pioneer Dr. Sanders helped define a new frontier that few have seen or crossed…telemedicine [has] the ability to redress the concerns of acccessibility, cost, and quality in medical care. Believing that such systems promise to promote more equitable delivery of health care by lowering cost and reducing other barriers that block access to care among rural and low-income families, Dr. Sanders has become not only an advocate but an activist for the cause.

He is also an engaging speaker.
