Over The Counter Naloxone And Workshops At The Augusta Heritage Center On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, every summer, the Augusta Heritage Center in Elkins attracts thousands of visitors who come to learn about traditional arts, music and crafts. Inside Appalachia’s Bill Lynch spoke with Seth Young about the center’s mission and its plans to bring more high school juniors and seniors to its summer workshops – for free.

Also, in this show, the opioid overdose drug naloxone nasal spray will soon be available to purchase over the counter. But there are concerns. Appalachia Health news Reporter Emily Rice has more.

And the Allegheny Front, based in Pittsburgh, shares its latest story about the deadly Donora smog in the western Pennsylvania.
