‘Recovering Hope in Ashland County’ Event Set for Oct. 24

On Aug. 3, 2017, Ashland University President Dr. Carlos Campo and Attorney General Mike DeWine’s office held a roundtable discussion regarding the role of faith communities and the opioid crisis. As a result of this meeting, an event titled, “Recovering Hope in Ashland County - A Faith Based Approach to the Opioid Crisis,” has been scheduled in Ashland to further address this topic.

“Churches and other faith-based organizations are traditionally places of refuge, where individuals and families battered by addiction should be able to find comfort, support and counsel without stigma or judgment,” said DeWine. “My office is pleased to work with Ashland University and other area faith leaders to help the faith-based community learn about substance abuse and addiction. The goal is that those attending this conference will collaborate with other faith-based community agencies and other community partners to serve those who are affected and to bring hope and healing to those struggling with addiction.”

Goals of the project are to expand enrollment in Ashland University’s baccalaureate pre-licensure nursing education program by increasing available faculty resources and expanding clinical placement opportunities via implementation of two innovative models. Clinical site shortages and faculty shortages are national issues of concern in the education of future professional nurses and are barriers for universities to increasing enrollment.
