Mtn. News: Community Health from the Ground Up!

Mtn. News: Community Health from the Ground Up!

The Letcher County Shape Note Club sings at the launch party for Hemphill’s Black Sheep Brick Oven Bakery on January 19, 2018. PBS news crews were there filming for an upcoming piece about Appalshop.

 This week we bring you stories about community health, from the ground up!  First we’ll hear about a new bakery which aims to provide Letcher County residents with healthy, locally sourced breads and baked goods while supporting Drug Court participants in their journeys to recovery.  Then, we’ll hear Whitesburg’s own   Dr. Van Breeding speaking on a panel presentation at Appalshop last week, in which local media makers, lawyers, and healthcare providers talked to students with the Harvard Kennedy School of Governance about healthcare needs in EKY.
