Can you recall what first attracted you to the mountains of North Carolina? For generations, community staples like Appalachian State University, Grandfather Mountain and Tweetsie Railroad have welcomed visitors in search of education, adventure, family entertainment and nowadays healing. Thanks to The Foley Center at Chestnut Ridge, Appalachian Regional Healthcare System’s new post-acute care center in Blowing Rock, NC visitors have started planning what is referred to as “Medical Tourism” trips to the High Country. Caron Baker Wike is one such visitor.

After hearing that his health was in jeopardy a few months ago, Justin Weltz will graduate this spring with a Thrive “degree” in improved fitness from the Paul H. Broyhill Wellness Center and a Master’s degree in English from Appalachian State University.

As a result of the declining number of flu cases seen over the past few weeks, the visitation restriction imposed at The Foley Center, Cannon Memorial Hospital and Watauga Medical Center on February 24th has been lifted. 

Have you ever received a scholarship and wondered what it could mean for your future? Callie Crump, Pulmonary Navigator at Appalachian Regional Healthcare System (ARHS), certainly has.
