Welcome to Teledermatology in Rural Georgia!

Teledermatology in Rural Georgia is a program sponsored by the Georgia Cancer Center and the Department of Dermatology at Augusta University through a grant from the United States Department of Agriculture Rural Utilities Service, Distance Learning and Telemedicine Grants Program.

Program Mission

The goal of this program is to reduce health disparities and inequities in skin cancer screening for people living in rural, underserved, and underpopulated regions of the State of Georgia through a two-pronged approach by:

  • Providing remote diagnosis (telemedicine/teledermatology) of skin lesions through the use of MoleScope II™ dermatoscopes by partnering physicians within AU’s Department of Dermatology with healthcare providers at clinics in rural healthcare centers in Georgia.
  • Providing dermatologic and cancer prevention education to healthcare providers as well as to rural communities using distance learning technology. This dual approach of patient and primary healthcare team education and access to expert dermatologic assessment of suspicious skin lesions will improve the health of Georgians living in rural, underserved areas.
