Broadcast live by WTZQ, the Healthy Q-munity Radiothon will feature compelling stories from Blue Ridge Health patients, doctors, nurses and staff, as well as guest commentary from community leaders and non-profit partners. Staff and volunteers will be answering the phones during the event – many of whom have already pledged their support to this effort.
“We are excited to partner with our friends at WTZQ to broadcast this Radiothon.” said Dr. Richard Hudspeth, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Medical Officer for Blue Ridge Health. “The generous support of listeners will help us do so much more to improve the lives of patients who turn to Blue Ridge Health for care. We are grateful for each and every hero who donates to support our patients.”
The Radiothon’s goal is to raise funds to support Blue Ridge Health’s Henderson County practices. All monies raised will stay in the community, helping to create a long-term healthcare structure that will benefit our region for many years to come.
