Ohio State's Nisonger Center, Ohio Department of Health Awarded Grant to Help Those with Disabilities

The Ohio State University Nisonger Center and Ohio Department of Health were recently awarded a $900,000 grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to promote health, prevent chronic disease, and increase the quality of life among people with disabilities. This is the first time that Ohio is among the states awarded this grant to develop and strengthen health-related disability programs. The Ohio Disability and Health Program (ODHP) is a partnership between The Ohio Department of Health and the two Ohio University Centers of Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDDs): the Nisonger Center and the University of Cincinnati UCEDD at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. Dr. Susan M. Havercamp, director of health promotion and health care parity at the Nisonger Center, is principal investigator.

The Autism Society of Ohio wrote a letter of support for this grant and will participate in the taskforce working with Dr. Havercamp on this grant.
