I am pleased that HHS continues to invest in our health centers to help provide essential medical services and ensure that all West Virginians have access to quality, affordable health care,” said Senator Manchin. “As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, I will continue to advocate for funding to support health centers in Mountain State.”
