The third week of Listen tto America, HuffPost’s 25-city tour around the U.S., kicked off in Asheville, North Carolina.
Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, the city boasts natural beauty and so much more. With its extremely vivacious arts scene and gorgeous architecture, downtown Asheville delights residents and visitors alike.
HuffPost held interviews at 12 Bones Smokehouse and Wedge Brewery, two local haunts much loved by their regulars. Additionally, there was a panel discussion about women’s health and rural hospitalsat the Lenoir-Rhyne University’s Center for Graduate Studies. Panelists discussed the many challenges that women face in rural areas, like decreased maternity services and other disparities in accessing health care.
