article, "COVID-19 Telehealth Funding, Round 2: What You Need to Know". In the article, he discusses the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) second round of COVID-19 telehealth funding - and what the implications are for the communications and telehealth industries - including who is eligible for this round, and what will be provided.
