Community Success Stories FARMacy

“Beth had health care coverage until she was 18 years old but lost coverage when she left her parents’ home. By the young age of 24 after receiving no preventive health care for several years, she was struggling with obesity, pre-diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension, and depression. Beth heard about Wheeling Health Right and skeptically called to inquire about services. Finding that she qualified, she made and kept an appointment with the clinic and immersed herself in all the resources that were offered to her, including counseling and by participating in FARMacy, our prescriptions for produce program. Within the year, Beth found that she felt dramatically healthier; she had lost 50 pounds, her cholesterol and blood pressure had normalized and her blood work no longer showed signs of pre-diabetes. She is living a happy, productive and healthy life.”
