Dr. Angad Singh
“I am a firm believer that everyone deserves equal access to excellent care. Although virtual options for health care have become an essential part of many practices, not everyone feels comfortable with implementing or using the technology. By working to improve virtual care options for Indian Country, I value the opportunity to address structural inequities affecting the health of Indigenous people. Indian Country ECHO creates a rich opportunity for everyone to come together and share their expertise. Each person learns through the process and together we are able to support the health of the community.”
