Community Leaders Tackling Community Problems

Many community leaders gathered at the Beckley-Raleigh County Convention Center this afternoon in order to respond to a community health crisis.
Many of the community leaders spoke on the opioid crisis affecting Raleigh County while others spoke on the public health crisis of Hepatitis C and HIV. Appalachian Regional Hospital CEO Rocco Massey said bringing the community leaders together for this meeting is necessary to formulate a solution.
“Today is about us coming together as a community and formulating good strategies and action plans to help address this before it truly becomes a bigger problem,” said Mr. Massey.
A follow-up discussion on this topic will take place on March 6th at the Beckley ARH Gymnasium.
