WEBINAR 5 | Protecting the Telehealth Consumer: FTC and State-Based Considerations

As the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States is easing, telemedicine is facing an important crossroads.

  • The ins and outs of advertising telehealth, including claims, endorsements and social media

  • Strategies for engaging with users in the digital environment
