ARH's Danielle Franklin Harmon: Investing in Tomorrow's Leaders

Danielle Franklin Harmon is the Community Outreach Manager of the Big Sandy region of Appalachian Regional Healthcare. With about a decade of experience working with the community development and outreach, Danielle is committed to bettering her community. Most of the time, she says, that takes the form of health and wellness initiatives.  “We conduct a community health needs assessment and make a goal of what we want to do for the next three years. Then, I work for those next three years to make sure that we meet our goals for community health and wellness.” Eastern Kentucky, where Danielle’s programs are enacted, is largely an impoverished area with a huge need for preventative screenings and health education. “When it comes to health and wellness, many people in my area don’t take care of themselves the way that they should. My job is to create new programs in school systems, in civic organizations, and in the community, trying to bring people together for health and wellness education, and to create a better community.” Read more...

From The Mountain State to the Las Vegas Strip: ARH’s Candy Cooper Wins Trip of a Lifetime from ERP!

Candy Cooper always wanted to be a nurse. “I love caring for patients and taking care of those who are unable to take care of themselves. I feel like that’s what’s in my heart. Nothing makes me feel better than when a patient comes in sick, and I can send them home feeling good.” That’s exactly what Candy has been doing for 25 years in the Telemetry Unit at Beckley Appalachian Regional Healthcare. Not only does Candy care for her community’s critical chest pain and congestive heart failure patients every day, she also helps to mentor the region’s next generation of nurses. When nursing students from the University of Charleston or Bluefield State College need to do clinicals, they spend all 180 clinical hours with Candy, learning first-hand what it’s like to be a telemetry nurse. When one of her nursing students, Beth, expressed how much she learned from Candy and that she’d like to continue working at Beckley ARH, Candy encouraged Beth to apply after graduation. Read more...

ARH Scholars Fall 2019 Winner: Cole Williams

Twice a year, students from across the region are invited to apply for the Appalachian Regional Healthcare (ARH) Scholars program. The ARH Scholars are awarded a $5,000 academic scholarship to pursue a degree in healthcare. Their stories are unique, but a common thread unites every winner: a desire to make a difference to the people of Appalachia through healthcare. The Fall 2019 class of ARH Scholars included ten talented future healthcare providers, like Cole Parker Williams. Cole is a senior at Knott County Central High School. His main focus is his studies, which is why he’s maintained great grades and attended AP classes, in addition to being part of the archery, tennis, and golf teams. Throughout his schooling this far, Cole says his mother has been his biggest mentor and inspiration. As a librarian at Knott County Central, she's always encouraged him at school. “My mom really pushed me in my education. She’s helped me see the value of getting good grades, she’s helped make sure that I’m in good, positive friend groups, and helped ensure that I have fun at school.” Read more...
