Elva Lima, Verizon's vice president of strategic programs, said, "Broadband technology is revolutionizing the way we live, and nowhere is its potential greater than in the field of health care. Verizon is building the communications networks that are making this revolution possible, and, at the same time, we are investing in farsighted projects such as La Maestra's, which are leading the way in using technology to benefit everyone in our community."
