Health Net Connect Provides Virtual Care Technology to Help M.E.R.C.I’s (Medical Emergency Relief for Christian Iraqis) Humanitarian Efforts

Wixom, Michigan:  Health Net Connect is providing its virtual care technology to help support M.E.R.C.I’s efforts in four cities in Iraq where there are large concentrations of Christian refugees.  “By utilizing our technology, refugees will have access to medical care virtually from providers across the globe,” said Stephen Shaya, M.D., EVP of J & B and HNC, who recently spoke at a M.E.R.C.I event.   He also quoted Mother Teresa.  “There are no great things, only small things with great love.”
