“Hamilton County Public Health Webinar Series: A Progressive Community Risk Reduction Effort Targeting the Second Largest Township in the State of Ohio”
In Hamilton County, Ohio, a progressive risk reduction approach was established in February 2021 where a Community Health Coordinator (CHC) position was developed to be the liaison between the health department and Colerain Township. This new position ultimately aimed to help township employees and community members connect with resources. With Colerain as the second largest township in Ohio, there is a significant population of people who need assistance. Our goal for this position was to collaborate with first responders through referrals and the Colerain community to provide the residents with linkage to care for issues such as addiction, mental health, domestic violence, homelessness, and basic needs. We offered harm reduction supplies (naloxone, fentanyl test strips, etc.) and treatment services by visiting residents who have experienced an overdose through the Quick Response Team. Lastly, we worked with the Northwest Local School District to deliver early interventions for students who were first-time drug/alcohol offenders at the schools. By implementing these programs through the CHC position, residents had a safe space to reach out about their needs and find resources to help improve their safety, health, and wellness.

During this webinar, you will hear from HCPH, The Community Health Coordinator, and Colerain Township Fire Department. We hope you can join us for this Hamilton County Public Health OD2A Peer-to-Peer Webinar and participate in this very critical conversation.

Learning Objectives:
1. Participants will be able to describe the need for innovative harm and risk reduction efforts in large townships and communities.
2. Participants will be able to identify key elements on how to replicate this program in other communities and create buy-in from external partners.
