April 2024 Newsletter

Celebrating Our Volunteers!

National Volunteer Week was celebrated from April 21st through 27th! This week-long celebration honors the individuals across the country who go above and beyond to serve their communities. Here at WV Health Right, we celebrate our volunteers year round with the recognition that our work wouldn’t be possible without their dedication. Did you know that we have a total of 600 medical and non-medical volunteers who serve our more than 44,000 patients each year? Check out our most recent Volunteer Spotlight on Dr. Michael Tupta here and learn about how he’s provided free dental care to West Virginians who otherwise couldn’t afford those services. To all of our volunteers: thank you!
