Dr. Michael McCawley, second right in front, West Virginia University School of Public Health, discussed plans for improving health in Wyoming County with several county representatives including, front, from left, Commissioner Larry Mathis, Circuit Judge Warren McGraw and Commissioner Jason Mullins. McCawley was among the WVU officials visiting Wyoming County last week to begin plans for improving nutrition, providing means for residents to exercise, address the abuse of prescription drugs, among other health issues. “Their thinking is that if the health of county residents is improved by better nutrition and more exercise, it will be easier for residents to fight off any environmental health hazards,” according to David “Bugs” Stover, circuit clerk. “It will also be easier for these experts to determine if something in the environment is indeed making us sick.”
