According to the Ohio Department of Health statistics, Trumbull County had the second highest number of overdose deaths in Northeast Ohio in 2015. In March of 2016 alone, 26 people died from overdoses.

To help fight the growing trend and save lives, Kent State University at Trumbull is working with the county’s Mental Health and Recovery Board and Sen. Sean O’Brien’s office.

The Kent State University community joins the nation, especially our fellow Ohio citizens, in mourning the passing of statesman George Voinovich. His contributions to our state and our nation are without question. From his staunch support of early education initiatives such as Head Start programs to his support of a system of higher education in Ohio that met the needs of all students regardless of race, ethnicity or socioeconomic status, George Voinovich will long be remembered for his legacy of support for a quality education for all Ohioans.

Kent State University, in partnership with the University of Akron, will present a “Why Polling Still Matters” forum at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, April 25, in the Kent Student Center Ballroom Balcony as part of the “Politically Speaking” public forum series discussing the upcoming general election and Ohio’s role in choosing the next U.S. president.
