About Us

Two years ago several retired physicians who had been members of Physicians for a National Health Progam (PNHP) since the 1980s, formed the West Viriginia chapter of PHNP. Their mission is to bring West Virginia physicians, other health professionals, and interested citizens together to champion a single-payer national healthcare system.
