Providing Answers for the Leading Killer of Ohioans Under 55

Opioid epidemic

Channel 10 reported on a study done by four members of the Swank Program in Rural-Urban Policy, which is part of the Agricultural, Environmental and Development Economics Department at CFAES.  The study provided some surprising information on the crisis, including the financial cost and the fact that the state only has the ability to treat 40% of those suffering.  Important research like this is part of OSU’s work to combat the opioid crisis in our communities.  You can make more work like this possible with a gift to the Swank Program.
