The Glenville Democrat/ Pathfinder B-2 OHober 20. 1977 Turners attend Health Conference The Governor&apos;s Office of Economic and Community Development, with the assistance of West Virginia Univers- fly's Office of Health Services Research, and Family Health Care, Inc., held a conference on Primary Health Care at Canaan Valley State Park, October 5, 6, and 7. Dr. Byron J. Turner, President of the Gilmer County Medical Center, Incorporated, and Mrs. Turner, attended the conference in the interests of the Gilmer County Medical Center. Speakers included a wide range of individuals concerned with Primary Health Care, including representatives from West Virginia University, the National Health Service Corps, the Governor's Office of Economic and Community Development, the Depart- ment of Health, Education and Welfare, Region III, the Appalachian Regional Commission, and others. There has been a shift in emphasis of federal legislation and funds from large medical center construction and operation to the problems of providing primary medical care for essentially rural areas, according to Dr. Turner. Dr. E. W. Beatty | Optometrist | Every I; TUESDAY [ all day I Grantsville I over Parsons Jewelry I l 354-7928 l Appointments accepted ! but ,lot required, i By the terms of federal legislation, a rural area is defined as "an area with a population of less than 2.500 persons." Using this criterion, 61 per cent of the people in West Virginia live in rural areas, compared to 26 per cent in the entire United States. All of Gilmer County, including Glenville, is classified as rural. Surprisingly. while the percentage of rural population in the entire United States declined about ten per cent in the past ten years, the percentage in West Virginia has changed less than one per cent, according to figures. Primary Health Care includes all the services which are provided by doctors, nurses, and other medical personnel in centers such as the Gilmer County Medical Center, and similar clinic facilities, either public or private. Secondary care is provided by hospitals and larger centers, and tertiary care is largely the province of the large teaching and research centers, such as the West Virginia University Medical Center. A major goal of current programs is to provide primary health care for everyone within a reasonable distance from home (thirty minutes driving time is considered reasonable), and secondary care within one hour's driving time. The Gilmer County Medical Center and the hospitals in Grantsville, Weston, Spencer, and Clarksburg, can easily provide these service, according to Turner. For cases requiring tertiary care, the driving time to the West Virginia University Medical Center is about two hours from Glenville. The problems discussed by the conference speakers were largely related to the problems of physician recruitment and retention, and the problems relating to the operation of a primary health center. The informa- tion gained at this conference will be of use by the Gilmer County Medical Center Board of Directors as they EL TOKO '""'"-  FRIDAY & SATURDAY OCTOBER 21 & 22 FROM lO P.M. TO 2 A.M.
