Rural Telehealth in FQHC – Caleb Knowlton & Chris Coplen (Stigler, THW Center)

About Speaker

Caleb is the Special Projects Coordinator for Stigler Health and Wellness Center, Inc., the largest rural Community Health Center (Federally Qualified Health Center) in Oklahoma. After teaching high school for eight years, Caleb entered the world of healthcare after being given the opportunity to join the tremendous team at SHWC. Since that time, Caleb has coordinated the implementation of multiple projects focused on expanding services, increasing access, and optimizing the quality of patient care for the patients in the seven-county service area within East Central Oklahoma.

Chris Coplen is the Community Services Coordinator for Stigler Health and Wellness Center, Inc., a Federally Qualified Health Center. As SHWC’s expansion of services beyond the walls of each clinic location, she connects the communities within the seven-county service area to the many resources the health center offers and quickly became a major player in SHWC’s growing remote-site telehealth program. In addition, Chris coordinates the mobile dental unit program through partnerships with surrounding schools, libraries, community centers, and businesses. Through part of the Rural Health Opioid Program and the Rural Communities Opioid Response Program, Chris is currently working with local middle school and high school staff and students to develop and implement an opioid use disorder education and prevention program.
