OAKWOOD, Va. (AP) - The Appalachian College of Pharmacy is receiving federal funding to improve chronic disease management in southwest Virginia.

 

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said Wednesday that the college has been awarded $149,049 grant from the Distance Learning and Telemedicine program.

 

The money will be used to buy telemedicine equipment that will allow patients with chronic diseases to interact with providers to manage their symptoms.

 

The college's partners in the project are Johnston Memorial Hospital Diabetes Center in Abingdon, Rite Aid Pharmacy and Buchanan Health Center in Grundy, and Rite Aid Pharmacy in Lebanon.
