Wheeling Health Right is a nonprofit organization that provides healthcare to the uninsured and underinsured populations in the Wheeling and Ohio Valley area. The clinic opened in 1985, and has been recognized as one of the best free clinics in the United States. The staff and board members work tirelessly to obtain funding from many different sources, including government grants and donors. The clinic has expanded over the years to include a pharmacy and dental clinic, and provides an opportunity for resident physicians and dental students to gain valuable experience treating patients in a hands-on setting, while providing much needed care for those who otherwise may not have access to it. With ongoing changes in the political and government climate, it remains a challenge to generate money to sufficiently fund everything that Health Right does, and the clinic relies upon the generous donations of other organizations and individuals to continue to provide healthcare assistance to our community. In addition to the Chefs’ Auction, which is a wonderful event, there are many other ways that you can contribute to Wheeling Health Right and the work that they do. Please consider checking out their website for more information about the organization, the Chefs’ Auction, and other ways to get involved. (http://www.wheelinghealthright.com/)
