Marshall med school expands Mingo clinic services

Feb. 19, 2013 @ 08:34 AM

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) — Marshall University’s medical school is expanding specialty health care services at a clinic in Mingo County.

Nephrologist Dr. Joseph I. Shapiro began seeing patients at the Larry Joe Harless Community and Health Center in Gilbert on Monday. Nephrology concerns the study and treatment of kidney disease.

Physicians with the Marshall medical school have provided cardiology and endocrinology services at the clinic since 2012.

Shapiro is dean of the Joan. C. Edwards School of Medicine.

The clinic is part of a statewide initiative to provide health care to the most rural areas of the state.
