The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust has announced a grant of $593,736 to Dartmouth-Hitchcock to improve access to specialty care for people living with Crohn’s disease across northern New England. Dartmouth-Hitchcock will expand its current telemedicine program for inflammatory bowel disease, or IBD, creating a Virtual IBD Center to extend its Crohn’s disease services across Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.
With the funding, the IBD Center will expand access to its holistic care for people with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. This will include gastroenterologists with expertise in Crohn’s disease management and treatment, a Crohn’s disease nurse coordinator, and additional support from a psychologist, dietician, and a pharmacist.
U.S. Sens. Jeanne Shaheen, D-NH, and Tina Smith, D-Minn., have introduced legislation to help healthcare providers in delivering telehealth services and ensuring patients can continue to access health care from the safety of home amid the coronavirus pandemic. The Health Care at Home Act would prohibit restrictions on conditions that can be managed remotely and provide parity for coverage and reimbursement of mental and physical health services furnished through telehealth.

Officials said many students and recent graduates are unable to experience summer internships or begin jobs due to Covid-19 and they are seeking opportunities to continue building expertise by working with outside organizations on real-world projects. Project proposals or problem statements should be submitted by 5 p.m. Monday, June 1, at paulcollege.unh.edu. For more information about the program, contact Kimberly Clark, director of career and professional success, at Kimberly.Clark@unh.edu.
