Masons Donate to Nemours to Fund "TeleMedicine"

A 40 thousand-dollar donation will pay for technology to enable doctors at A.I. DuPont Children's Hospital to remotely evaluate young patients at Dover Air Force Base.

The money from the Grand Masonic Lodge of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia will fund the purchase of cameras and computers to allow doctors at Dover Air Force Base to send pictures and data to A.I. DuPont, saving military families the trip and other expenses.

It'll also make for faster diagnoses and treatment. The money comes from the "Change for Troops" and "Help for Heroes" funds supported by individual Masons. The Lodge's Grand Master presented the check to Nemours Health and Prevention Services Tuesday.
