U.S. Representative Andy Barr will visit the KentuckyOne Health Virtual Primary Care Clinic in Campton, Kentucky that provides access to much-needed primary and specialty care for the community. The clinic is one of two in the state operated by KentuckyOne to improve access to care for Kentuckians in underserved areas. 
 
Staffed by nurse practitioners, nurses and office coordinators, the clinic uses telemedicine technology to collaborate with physicians and specialists, which minimizes the need to travel to see a specialist and therefore the costs of care. 
 
The Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky and the federal government's Social Innovation Fund funded the clinics, which serve a critical need in the community.
