Nebraska Medicine Working with CCHS to Provide Endocrinology Telehealth ServiceJuly 18, 2019
ATLANTIC- Beginning in August, patients at Cass County Health System (CCHS) can attend telehealth appointments with Dr. Laura Graeff-Armas through the CCHS Diabetes Center. Dr. Armas is an Associate Professor of Medicine in the Division of Diabetes, Endocrinology & Metabolism, Department of Internal Medicine at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska.
For Nebraska Medicine, the primary goal is to ensure that patients have access to specialty endocrine services regardless of their location. Through telehealth appointments, the need for long travel is eliminated by virtually connecting the provider and the patient. The Diabetes Center Director, Aubrey Molgaard, RN, CDE, CHC, will participate in the appointment as well.
“This is a major success for our patients,” said Aubrey. “Dr. Armas is an exceptional physician, and the care that she can provide to our patients is really exciting.”
Dr. Armas will provide care for patients managing conditions such as diabetes, thyroid disease, and osteoporosis or metabolic bone disease. She graduated from Creighton School of Medicine in 2001. She completed an Internal Medicine Residency at Creighton University in 2004 and was a Resident Faculty at the Osteoporosis Research Center in 2004-2005. She subsequently completed an Endocrinology and Metabolism Fellowship at Creighton University in 2007.
