Doctors from the American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin of Queens and Long Island are volunteering telehealth visits for patients in India.
They're also helping overwhelmed doctors with expertise in treatment and care using their experience they got during the pandemic U.S.
The group says it's truly making a difference and saving lives even though the visits are virtual from halfway around the world.
