A different POV

Having recently moved from the NJ suburbs to Roanoke County, I am thrilled to have this resource. While in NJ, I was a breastfeeding counselor and doula that had my kids with CNMs. I had access to NYC for my rare hip problems and many other well-educated specialists. Just before moving here I was diagnosed with another rare disorder. Now I have found myself traveling to Charlottesville and soon Nashville for specialty consults. It seems ridiculous that in a country as wealthy as ours that so many people are without basic health care. Thank you for making this resource available. I look forward to getting more involved in the future.
