CUMBERLAND -The Community Trust Foundation (CTF) has granted $15,000 to AHEC West and its Mountain Health Alliance program (MHA) to help provide dentures, partial-plates, related oral health services and screenings for residents of Mineral County with limited financial needs.
Susan Stewart, executive director of Cumberland-based AHEC West, thanked CTF for the grant, saying it will help address a pressing, unmet need in neighboring Mineral County.
