Alzheimer’s Association will be hosting an Alzheimer’s Community Forum this Thursday December 13 at the library in Martinsburg

The Alzheimer’s Association will be hosting an Alzheimer’s Community Forum this Thursday December 13 at the library in Martinsburg.  Forums provide an opportunity for residents of all ages to come together to ask questions about the disease, share their personal experiences, learn about available resources and discover volunteer opportunities to support families affected by the disease.

 

No individual or family should have to navigate the challenges of Alzheimer’s disease alone. Community forums bring together families affected by the disease with dedicated staff and volunteers to open conversation in an effort to bolster resources, programs, and services to support families in their communities.

 

Working together with volunteers, the Alzheimer’s Association can work to ensure families have access to the resources available to help them face the many challenges associated with the disease. Community volunteers are essential in helping the Alzheimer’s Association best serve the needs of families affected by any type of dementia, in driving awareness and in mobilizing West Virginia communities in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease.

 

For more info on the upcoming Alzheimer’s Community Forum, see attached flyer:

  • Martinsburg, WV– 5:00pm Thursday, Dec 13, 2018 (101 West King St Martinsburg WV)

WVU Medicine celebrates one million outpatient visits

WVU Medicine celebrates one million outpatient visits

Thursday, November 29, 2018

WVU Medicine completed its one millionth outpatient visit for the year on Nov. 28, marking the first time the feat has been accomplished in the system’s history.

“While we are seeing more patients than ever before, we have significantly decreased the time it takes for a new patient to be seen by our providers while receiving the highest patient satisfaction scores we’ve ever had,” Darin Rogers, vice president of ambulatory operations, said.

WVU Medicine, Mon EMS to merge EMS services in Mon and Preston counties

WVU Medicine, Mon EMS to merge EMS services in Mon and Preston counties

Wednesday, November 28, 2018

WVU Hospitals and Monongalia Health System have signed a letter of intent to combine the assets of Monongalia Emergency Medical Services (Mon EMS) and HealthTeam Critical Care Transport to create a single, cohesive countywide emergency medical system/transport structure to better serve the needs of residents of Monongalia and Preston Counties.

Under the terms of the agreement, the assets of HealthTeam in Monongalia County will be transferred to Mon EMS. After the two entities are combined, Mon EMS will be jointly managed and operated by Mon Health System and WVU Hospitals.

According to officials, the joint operation will make EMS services more efficient, as services provided will be under a consistent, cost effective, and rapid response model, offering basic and advanced life support throughout the region.

The announcement was made at Wednesday’s (Nov. 28) Monongalia County Commission meeting.

Ambulances will be based at the present Mon EMS headquarters, at the Gateway complex, Cheat Lake VFD, Clinton District VFD, and Clay-Battelle Health Center. Other locations may be added in the future.

The Mon EMS ambulances will be co-branded after the joint agreement is in effect, and will display the name “Mon EMS,” as well as the logos of Mon Health Medical Center and WVU Medicine.

A new permanent president/director for Mon EMS will be recruited. In the meantime, the current special operations supervisor of Mon EMS, Pat Cornell, and the current president of HealthTeam, Clinton Burley, will serve as co-interim executive directors of Mon EMS.

The process to merge the assets must have approval from the boards of both hospitals, as well as state licensing agencies. It will likely be spring before details are finalized. In the meantime, calls will be dispatched based on the closest available vehicle.

Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).

As Congress returns for the lame duck session, they face a number of outstanding issues — one of which is the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). VAWA is a vital to the safety of victims, survivors, and their communities; it cannot simply be checked off of Congress’s to-do list by changing the dates for existing funding, ignoring the cries of countless survivors and direct service providers to do more. Survivors and their communities need Congress to take meaningful action.

 

The awareness of the scope of sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking occurring in our nation has never been greater. Congress must pass a bipartisan VAWA reauthorization that invests in increased evidence-based prevention, enhances survivors’ access to safety and justice, and maintains critical protections for vulnerable communities.

 

Requested Action

Contact your members of Congress to tell them:

  • VAWA is vital to protecting community safety, preventing violence, serving victims, and holding abusers accountable.
  • A VAWA that rolls back important protections for vulnerable communities or that fails to make important improvements identified by victims and survivors is unacceptable. Simple changing the dates on the existing funding will not address the needs of survivors.
  • VAWA has always been, and must always be, bipartisan.
