Walking out of the doors of South Carolina ETV, Marina Ziehe and Taylor Crouch carry a combined 40 pounds' worth of equipment. Loading up and settling in for the drive, they arrive at Greenville Health Systems Children’s Hospital, about a two-hour ride from Columbia. There they set up that equipment to interview Dr. Jonathan Markowitz. He specializes in pediatric gastroenterology. It’s all in an effort to elevate public understanding of telehealth in South Carolina.

Passionate reenactors traveled hours to Camden from both inside and outside of the state to participate in the event.

Producers film story of patient in school

Something familiar catches my eye on the right side of the road. In these early morning travels through rural South Carolina, there's something exciting about seeing fields of hay, corn, and other green things unidentifiable through the car window. Almost two hours from SCETV headquarters in Columbia, the 'My Telehealth' video production team pulls up to Hemingway Elementary School. The school is just one of 29 other schools in South Carolina that offer students school-based telehealth through the school nurse's office.
