Share Post:

U.S. Representative Mike Johnson (LA-04) today announced more than $2.2 million in federal grants to improve telemedicine and distance learning for Louisianians in the Fourth Congressional District. These investments, administered through the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), will be used to do the following:

Improve distance learning for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) courses in public schools. Establish telehealth networks and to purchase interactive equipment for medical diagnoses and services for rural health clinics and hospitals.
Expand mental health, opioid use, and substance abuse treatments and services in rural parishes.

“These unprecedented times have made the need for telemedicine and distance learning more apparent than ever before, and it’s critical that all Louisianians have access to these vital services,” said Johnson. “That’s why I’m pleased to see these investments being made in our rural communities to help expand healthcare and education opportunities. I’m grateful that we have a president who supports such innovation, and I look forward to seeing this technology being put to use in our communities.”
