STRONG – Strong Area Health Center is happy to welcome Jason Caudell, family nurse practitioner, to the team. Longtime provider at Strong, Dr. Ann Schwink, has transitioned from providing primary care services to focus on providing Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) services to patients at several HealthReach sites.
