10 under-the-radar excursions in western Virginia & the state of patient care (Roanoker)

The 2015 Roanoker Sourcebook is now available on newstands and online.

The new issue includes two of my stories.

One is a list of the “Top 10 Family Excursions for 2015.” Essentially, this compiles my favorite spots to go visit in western Virginia, with restaurant recommendations for each. Many of these recommendations are outdoor-oriented — Douthat State Park, Arcadia, Franklin County’s blueways — but not all.

Additionally, I interviewed key officials at western Virginia’s three major healthcare providers to learn what they are doing to improve patient care.
