Special computer-connected otoscopes and stethoscopes allow doctors to check ears, noses, throats, and heartbeats from afar." ... "Starting with two preschools in 2013, the program eventually grew to reach 97 schools in Texas, and has conducted 4,000 virtual doctor visits at those schools since 2013." --- Scientific American, 2017 9
