The National Geriatric Network identified and responded to telehealth training needs of geriatrics trainees affiliated with VA Geriatric Research Education and Clinical Centers to optimize care for rural older adults as part of a rapid response to COVID-19. While the webinar and nuts-and-bolts resources were developed within the VA context, they have demonstrated high demand and broader applicability. —Erin Goss, MD
