DES MOINES, Iowa — An Elkhart native’s business helps underserved communities talk to health care providers through telehealth technology.

Benjamin Lefever, a 1995 Elkhart Central High School graduate who played on the school’s basketball team that went to the state finals that year, has made a career in the health care field and, five years ago, founded the telehealth company Certintell, in Iowa. The idea was to provide a platform for mental health providers to engage with patients remotely.
