Improved telemedicine system connects doctors to autism patients in rural Georgia

To get the best care for her three autistic children, Mandi Larkin would drive three hours from her family’s home in Tifton, Georgia, to Marcus Autism Center in Atlanta. The drive to and from Atlanta was exhausting. Missed work, missed school and the long drive were constant sources of stress. Today, Larkin’s children receive world-class medical care at her local hospital via a state-of-the-art telemedicine link to Marcus Autism Center.
