When Hurricane Andrew ravaged south Miami-Dade County in 1992, the University of Miami’s medical school and the national Children’s Health Fund teamed up to bring mobile healthcare to children living amid the ruins. Now, thanks to a new partnership with the Verizon Foundation that promises to transform pediatric healthcare in underserved areas, their “doctor’s office on wheels” is bringing the expertise of the entire UHealth system to disadvantaged children across Miami-Dade County.

Powered by Verizon’s 4G LTE broadband network and the telecommunication company’s commitment to solving problems with innovative technology, the Miller School of Medicine medical team aboard the Children’s Health Fund’s bright blue pediatric mobile clinic can instantly connect children in need of specialized care to UM experts who are miles away via a computer, a high-speed wireless connection, video cameras and high-tech medical equipment.
