Grant will help brain aneurysm patients at DHMC
The $150,000 grant to the Center for Telehealth at Dartmouth-Hitchcock from the Missy Project was announced Tuesday.
Following her death, her family started the Texas-based foundation in 1999. The grant will “help brain aneurysm patients in northern New England have rapid access to neurovascular specialists; access that may have helped save Missy’s life,” Dartmouth-Hitchcock said in the announcement.
“To me, this is a brilliant program and a great way to serve the community,” Mary Magel said in the announcement. “I think this will dramatically cut the time from incident to treatment and I believe it’s going to save a lot of lives.” Magel is the executive director of the Missy Project and mother of the late Missy Magel.
The virtual aneurysm clinic will include educational content and a real-time video visit with Singer.“Ordinarily, after getting a scan from their doctor, patients have to wait weeks until they can get an appointment with me,” Singer said. “Many of them then drive great distances for what is typically a 15-minute appointment, and then they have to return at a later time if they need a diagnostic or treatment procedure. That 15-minute appointment can easily be conducted via the virtual aneurysm clinic. This reduces patient travel and the wait time for an appointment, and also give patients a better visit.”
