DEADLY NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASES ~11~" Muscular Dystrophy Association 1-800-572-171 7 Topics of Truth Compliments of Pastor Jessie M. Jones 762-7963 We all know the economy is bad and most people try to manage their money wisely. That's using wisdom. Every- thing has a price tag - from the window sticker in the automo- bile to the materials to build a house; any clothing in a depart- ment store to the least item in the grocery store - they all have a price tag and in most cases that's the first thing we look at. But it's so sad that very few people ever stop to look at the price tag that's on sin. It leads to separa- S. Hughes tions, divorces, children being placed in foster homes. It causes people to become alcoholics; drug over-doses that all too often lead to death. It seems like moral standards are something of the past. Young men and women over populate the jails ~and prisons. The list goes on and; on. Don't you think it's time that you,stop looking at the price: tag that's going to take your money and .start looking at the price tag that's gong to determine where you ~ill'spend eternity? Melton, MD Lebanon, named Virginia Family Physician of the Year S. Hughes Melton, MD, Lebanon, has been selected by the Virginia Academy of Family Physicians as the 2009 Virginia Family Physician of the Year. After completing his service requirement to the Army in July, 2000, Dr. Melton founded C- Health, P.C. with Dr. Brian East- on, MD, FAAFP. They dreamed of making life better for their patients in medically underserv- ed Russell County. They had no money, no staff, no building and little experience. Despite their limited resources, C-Health soon was recognized regionally when three of its providers were aw- arded Health Care Hero Awards for their innovation in rural health care. Today, Dr. Melton~works with an interdisciplinary team that is making life better for over 17,000 patients. C-Health is widely known for excellent quality of service and innovative implementation of technology in healthcare delivery. In order to meet the needs of their patients, they perform endoscopies at Russell County Medical Center, offer group visits for the treat- ment of chronic pain, substance abuse, women's health, and dia- betes, and provide a counseling center to address mental health needs. They parmer with the Ap- palachian College of Pharmacy to provide clinical pharmacy serwces to their patients. C- Health has a sliding scale to treat patients without insurance. The clinic also sets aside over four thousand dollars monthly to be used for community needs. TheSe funds have been used to help-'with medical and utility bills, purchase medication, sup- port ,mission trips and many other forms of outreach. Dr. Melton is an active edu- cator of the residents and med- ical and pharmacy students who spend time at C-Health. He pro- vides lectures for local CME conferences in the area of substance abuse as part of his activity to address the epidemic of prescription drug abuse in Appalachia. Dr. Melton is a member of Lebanon Memorial United Methodist Church where he sings in the choir, teaches Sunday School, and helps lead the Sunday worship service. Dr. Melton graduated Magna Cum Laude from Washington and Lee University and attended medical school at the University of Virginia (UVA).
