Dr. Charles H. McKown Jr., dean of Marshall University's Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine, is proud -- not only of the medical impact the school has had on the Tri-State, but also its economic impact, he said in February 2006. "We're a state school, and our aggregate budget is between $90 and $95 million a year," he says. "But we self-fund 90 percent of it. We get a tremendous bounce for the buck for the overall benefit of all West Virginians."
