OHIO's Fight in the Opioid Epidemic
Ohio University has made it a priority to join with community partners to elevate the impact of their collective efforts to combat the opioid epidemic.

Opioid Taskforce Homepage

The opioid epidemic has created a public health emergency through the nation, but most notably in Appalachia. Situated in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, we believe we have a moral obligation to assist the communities we serve, and right now many are hurting because of this epidemic. In his first year as President, former Dr. M. Duane Nellis created the OHIO Opioid Task Force to join Ohio University’s public and private partners to collectively elevate the impact of the region’s opioid-related initiatives. This is a University-wide priority throughout the system of Ohio University and beyond. Cross-campus and cross-disciplinary collaborations are vital as we work together to reclaim our region from the grips of opioid addiction.
