Heart of Glass - Blenko Glass
Blenko Glass is a West Virginia treasure that spans generations. Nothing symbolizes the state of West Virginia better or more beautifully than Blenko Glass. We will discuss current and former craftsmen and designers and how important it is that Blenko and West Virginia glass be appreciated and valued by the younger generation.

WV Rural Health Conference 2011
It was a low key conference of Rural Health Pracitioners.
We received an award - We accepted the award not for myself but for the many Cabin Creek Health Rural Providers current and past.
Cabin Creek was one of the first Rural Health agencies.
CCHC is a well respected Rural Health agency and I feel very blessed to be a part of CCHC.
Cabin Creek Health is A Health Organization that acknowledges and embraces the role of appropriate Oral Health and the relationship to whole person health.
Photeo #1 is the Award.

Dr Meckstroth is my dear friend- my mentor - I came to WVSOD knowing I wanted to work in an under served area, and that I wanted to educate my population in oral health. Dr Meck quickly became my hero. Dr. Meckstroth has spent the last 20 years inspiring others to work in public health. Later I would meet Martha Endre from the WV State Office of Rural Health (no photo) another person who has dedicated her professional life to recruiting good health practitioners to Rural West Virginia.
