SUBSTANCE ABUSE, OBESITY, CULTURAL COMPETENCE AND MORE: OHIO STUDENTS ARE ADDRESSING HEALTH ISSUES IN THEIR COMMUNITIES
Over 900 students from across Ohio gathered at Northeast Ohio Medical University in Rootstown, Ohio on April 23 to share their projects at the annual Health Professions Affinity Community (HPAC) Scholars Day.
The Ohio Colleges of Medicine Government Resource Center (GRC), a fast growing center for health policy research, quality improvement, and technical assistance, is pleased to announce several additions to our staff, including Carrie Farquhar and Tina Bickert from the Ohio Department of Health (ODH).
A study led by Rachel Tumin, Survey and Population Health Analyst Manager at GRC, found adults who never watch TV during family meals and eat mostly home-cooked food are much less likely than others to be obese.
