Crouch today announced that Cynthia Beane, Commissioner of DHHR's Bureau for Medical Services, is one of six Medicaid directors chosen nationwide to participate in the Medicaid Leadership Institute, a national initiative directed by the Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) and made possible by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF). The program offers a unique opportunity for Medicaid directors from states across the U.S. to develop the skills and expertise necessary to successfully lead and improve their essential state programs in an ever-changing policy and financing environment. "Commissioner Beane understands the critical role that Medicaid plays by providing medically necessary services to more than 520,000 residents," Crouch said. !'A testament to Commissioner Beane's unwavering leadership, her selection to this national program will allow her to gain valuable insight that will ultimately benefit the people of West Virginia." Ms. Beane was competitively selected to participate in the leadership development program along with five additional Medicaid directors: Florida, Indiana, Minnesota, Tennessee, and Texas. "Medicaid directors oversee the delivery of vital health care services for nearly a quarter of the U.S. population," said John Lumpkin, MD, MPH, senior vice president at PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT Drug overdoses have become the leading cause of accidental death in the United States with heroin and other opiates being the largest contributor.

"Our investment in leadership development for these state officials acknowledges the important role they play in building a Culture of Health for everyone in America -- particularly individuals who are most vulnerable to social and economic factors that negatively impact health." The 2018 class of the Medicaid Leadership Institute marks the seventh group of Medicaid directors chosen for this prestigious executive training opportunity. With this next class, 42 directors in 33 states and the District of Columbia have participated in the program since 2009. It is directed by Mark Larson, vice president at CHCS, former Medicaid director, and Class of 2014 MLI Fellow. "Medicaid directors are essentially health plan CEOs-- executives at the helm of typically the largest insurer in his or her state," said Mr. Larson. "We are excited to support this year's class of dedicated leaders from six states in their efforts to maximize the quality and cost-effectiveness of state programs that are so critical to the well-being of millions of Americans." During the 10-month-long program, fellows participate in in- person training sessions, site visits, and individualized coaching, as well as networking opportunities with peers, thought leaders, and policy makers.

Editorial By Barbara Daniels Illicit Organ Harvesting In China According to international reports in 2015 and 2016, over a million Falun Gong have been killed since the year 2000 to supply organs for national and international clients. In China, organs for transplant are available on demand. In the rest of the world, the wait is months at best, and more likely years. "In 2006, allegations emerged that a large number of Falun Gong practitioners had been killed to supply China's organ transplant industry. An initial investigation stated 'the source of 41,500 transplants for- the six year period 2000 to 2005 is unexplaineff~and concluded that 'there has been and continues today to be large scale organ seizures from unwilling Falun Gong practitioners'." Wikipedia In the early 1990s, the Falun Gong, a Buddhist revival group that focuses on truthfulness, compassion and tolerance, was rapidly becoming a major influence in China. Feeling threatened by this movement, the Communist regime began a campaign to demonize these people. Labeled "enemies of the state" and "not human", Falun Gong were rounded up, tortured and, upon refusing to identify fellow practitioners, imprisoned. This is a 9 to 10 BILLION- dollar per year business, completely backed by the Chinese government. The website for the transplant foundation, CITNAC, unabashedly thanks the Ministries of Security, Judicial, Health, Civil-Affairs and "Procuratorate" "for the support extended for our completing such a large number of organ transplants every year [by] jointly making laws to estabhsh that organ procurement received government support and protection." www., Three investigators have won Nobel Peace Prize nominations for their books "Bloody Harvest" and '~rhe Slaughter~~ w.l~ieh, botli document the issue. ' .... ,, House Resolution 343~ condemning this genocide, was unanimously passed in June, 2016. However, we are still waiting for the Senate version. WV Senators, Manchin and Capito for two, appear oddly uncommitted on this subject. Senate Resolution 220, introduced in July by ten Senators, condemns the Chinese Communist Regime for this horrific practice and expresses solidarity with Falun Gong practitioners and their families.
