Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) announced that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) will award $65,400 to Charleston Area Medical Center (CAMC) Health System.  The funds will be used to assist with nurse anesthetist training.
