Don’t Live in Denial, Ohio

Ohio has one of the highest opioid overdose death rates in the entire nation. Despite research from the Ohio Opioid Education Alliance revealing that most Ohio parents are aware of this, they still underestimate the risk opioids pose to their children and family.

To counteract this “not my kid” mindset, the Alliance brought it to life in their public awareness campaign, “Don’t live in Denial, Ohio.

In the imaginary town of Denial, parents are constantly overlooking important preventative measures to keep their kids safe from addiction.

Last year Greg sat down with the President of the Nationwide Insurance Foundation, Chad Jester, who introduced the program in episode 214 of the Cover2 PPT Podcast series.

In today’s podcast, Chad returns to share the success of the program and the plans to spread it throughout Ohio in the coming year.

Join us for today’s podcast where returning guest Chad Jester shares the results of the “Living in Denial, Ohio” public awareness campaign.
