COLLABORATTING FOR A HEALTHIER COMMUNITY
Brock Hughes Medical Center (BHMC), the Wytheville Farmers Market (WFM) and Downtown Wytheville have been collaborating, with the common goal to improve the health of our community. In April, BHMC began offering a Healthy Lifestyle Series at the clinic every third Wednesday from 2-3. These classes focus on a different health topic each month and are free and open to the public. Each participant of the class receives a “farmacy voucher/produce prescription” that can be used to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at the Wytheville Famers Market. The Market, located at 210 W Spring Street, is open every Saturday from 8 am-12pm, May through October and every other Saturday from 10-12, November through April.
*Classes are held the 3rd Wednesday of every month (April - September) at 2:00 at the Brock Hughes Clinic. Stay Tuned for class topics.
Brock Hughes Medical Center is a nonprofit organization that provides primary health care services to those who have Medicaid or Medicare coverage or no health insurance coverage at all in Wythe and Bland counties. BHMC is currently providing over 4,000 visits a year to over 800 patients, of all ages-birth to geriatric. The clinic is located at 450 West Monroe Street. For more information on patient services, or to register to attend a free health education class, please call 276-223-0558. The Wytheville Farmers Market connects local farmers, growers, and artisans with the local communities of Southwest Virginia through a direct to consumer “farm to market” platform. The Wythe-Bland Foundation provides funding to BHMC and WFM.
