OAK HILL —
Pastors, social workers, nurses, health care providers and those who work with or want to help the uninsured are invited to free training in Oak Hill next week.
Participants will learn how to identify and enroll eligible state residents in the Expanded Medicaid program under the new Affordable Care Act.
In collaboration with West Virginians for Affordable Health Care, Southern Appalachian Labor School (SALS) will host the four-hour training workshop Aug. 21 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
