Upshur Indivisible gathered community members together Monday evening at West Virginia Weselyan college for an open panel on healthcare.
The panel consisted of experts in the field including a Department of Health and Human Resources representative.
Attendees asked questions surrounding Medicaid, women’s health and health insurance issues.
The panel was centered around providing education on perceptions surrounding healthcare.
“We had a really great discussion, it just sort of took off on its own and I think that we accomplished changing the conversation and making people think and sometimes I think that might be the most important,” said Edwina Howard-Jack, Upshur Indivisible director chair.
The panel wrapped up with many people leaving the event discussing how they can spread the education on healthcare.
