The Future of Healthy Vending at Carilion Clinic

If you want a glimpse into the future of vending machines, you'll find it on the third floor of Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital. The VE-Connect machine, operating as part of Carilion's partnership with Canteen Vending, features a high definition screen, a camera and wireless internet. The screen displays nutritional information, allows the customer to search through product categories and can play videos promoting healthy food choices. It is currently the only VE Connect maching in Virginia, and one of only a handfull operating in the US.  WSLS anchor Karen McNew recently saw the machine in action during a visit to CRMH.
