(Oklahoma City-AP) -- The Choctaw Nation Health Services Authority has received a grant to expand its distance learning and video conferencing capabilities through Oklahoma's OneNet services. The U-S Agriculture Department announced yesterday that the $195,812 grant will be used to purchase a speed conversion bridge. That allows all rural areas to access the system. The project also will provide direct medical eye care services and medical training from connections with Northeastern University College of Optometry and the Oklahoma State University College of Osteopathic Medicine.
