  • Tailgating Recipes: On the Lighter Side

  • Our hearts are heavy today with the tragic loss of WDBJ7 reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward in a senseless shooting at Smith Mountain Lake. Our Carilion Clinic family had gotten to know Alison and Adam well in recent years, spending many early mornings with them during live TV reports from our facilities throughout the region. Alison and Adam were more than journalists to us -- they were good friends who will be missed. A third victim in this morning's shooting was Vicki Gardner, a close friend and member of the Carilion Franklin Memorial Hospital Board of Directors. Vicki was transported to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital and underwent emergency surgery. She is currently recovering and is in stable condition. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Alison, Adam and Vicki, as well as our friends at WDBJ7, during this very difficult time.
