Community Education Group to Convene Statewide Stakeholder Meeting

#CEGInWV will be convening a statewide stakeholder meeting on Tuesday, September 1st, 2020, @ 12:00 PM for West Virginia advocates, organizations, providers, and state officials.

This meeting will be used to discuss CEG’s work in West Virginia, including the following:

  • Working with the West Virginia Bureau for Public Health, Office of Epidemiology and Prevention Services, and Office of Laboratory Services to revise our state’s HIV testing statute (§64-64) to make it easier for organizations to conduct rapid HIV testing throughout the state;
  • Working with the Governor’s Advisory Council on Substance Abuse and Treatment to repeal West Virginia’s 2007 legislative moratorium on Opioid Treatment Programs (§16-5Y-12) so that we can open more treatment facilities across the state to address our state’s opioid crisis;
  • Working with WV’s state Medicaid office to remove Prior Authorization requirements that serve as barriers to treatment for Hepatitis C;
  • CEG & TruEvolution’s creation of the Rural Health Service Providers Network;
  • CEG’s forthcoming COVID-19 Relief Package distribution campaign.

In addition to CEG’s activities, we will be requesting input from stakeholders about the issues they’re facing providing services in the state of West Virginia – what are their priorities; what issues need to be addressed; what resources are needed?

We want to hear from you.
