"I am grateful to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation for doing so much to address health care issues across the country, and especially here in West Virginia," said Rockefeller. "The money provided by these grants will enhance volunteer" caregiving and provide some needed help tbr talented West Virginians to finish nursing school - this is great news for our state." "I commend the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation for their continued dedication to keeping people healthy over the past 40 years," Senator Manchin said. "I'm so pleased to see these grants support worthwhile efforts, whether it's educating more people in the field of nursing or engaging faith communities in expanding care in their communities. There's no question that nurses are on the frontlines of health care in our state, and that our churches do important outreach to folks who are homebound.
