A Cabell County doctor has surrendered her medical license following an investigation of her drug prescribing practices.

The West Virginia Board of Osteopathy had suspended Dr. Anita Dawson's license in April 2010 following a raid of her Milton office by federal agents. According to the board, eight of Dawson's patients died from overdoses. No criminal charges have been filed.      
Media outlets report that Dawson's attorney sent a letter to the board in July offering to forfeit her license. The board accepted the surrender of Dawson's license last week.
