Megan Peterson: Helping Schools via Telemedicine

Megan Peterson on BLBS

After working in the addiction field for over 15 years both as a counselor and pharmaceutical representative, Megan Peterson knew there could be a better way that patients could get help. She took action and started 2nd Chance Counseling Service She believes that patients deserve that 2nd, 3rd, 10th, etc, chance. As long as you are willing to put in the work she will be there to help. 

Certain times in life, we may need professional counseling, why be limited by our schedules, work, family commitments, and the list goes on. Megan Peterson provides an easy solution that is just as cost efficient as current counseling solutions and provides more flexibility, easy use, and offers more choices for patients. She truly believes the Telemedicine platform fits in with the future of treatment and is here to stay!
