West Virginians for Affordable Health Care to Honor Barbara Fleischauer with Rockefeller Award 

West Virginians for Affordable Health Care is recognizing Barbara Fleischauer with the distinguished Rockefeller Award for her lifetime contributions to improving access to health care for West Virginians.

The Rockefeller Award, named in honor of former West Virginia Senator Jay Rockefeller, is given annually to an individual for their work, dedication and inspiring efforts to ensure that every West Virginian has access to affordable and quality healthcare coverage.

Barbara Fleischauer served in the West Virginia House of Delegates for over 20 years where she sponsored and passed important legislation protecting the rights of women and children; expanding health care; advancing civil rights; and improving benefits for veterans and disabled Mountaineers.

Some of Fleischauer’s most notable and enduring achievements in advancing health care include: capping insulin costs, increasing access to medical care in rural West Virginia, increasing funding and insurance coverage for children with autism and creation of the Office of Oral Health.

For these lifetime achievements, among many others, West Virginians for Affordable Health Care will honor former Delegate Fleischauer with the distinguished Rockefeller Award at The Woman’s Club of Charleston on Thursday, May 16, 2024. The reception will begin at 5:30p.m.
