Wheeling Health Right Inc
June 7, 2010

As a volunteer, I helped with different areas of care. My first day I was overwhelmed at the number of prescriptions that were filled in a day. I realized most of these people would go without their medicines if not for Health Right. I also helped with filing papers on charts and noticed the extent of care these patients recieved. They treated simple colds to major life threarening illnesses. So many of the doctors do volunteer work to help the underprivledged. The doctors were psychiatrist, OB and gyne doctors, cardiologist, family doctors and more. All were treated with respect and dignity and made to feel that their life mattered. The community would be in dire need of care if Wheeling Health Right did not exist. They make community care important to people not just in Wheeling but many counties in WV and Ohio. Their special programs include going out into the community for Diabetic education, smoking cessation, Baby and child care and many other helpful programs.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My son is a patient and without Wheeling Health Right, he would not be able to afford his medication or have a doctor to examine him.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase the number of patients they were able to see. Also I would make longer hours of operation so that people wouldn't have to wait to see a doctor.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the feeling of fullfillment. It is so nice when someone you've helped looks at you with such gratitude in their eyes. You know then that you have helped someone.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

kind, helpful, friendly and mostly caring.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

build a larger service area, have the money for funding special programs for the community and afford to get a bigger staff.

Ways to make it better...

I could have more time to devote to helping. Maybe be a staff member some day

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding and working within the guidelines of government.

One thing I'd also say is that...

It was an honor and privledge to help Wheeling Health Right any way I could. I work full time now so am not able to help but I do miss it.
