CEDARVILLE, Ohio (WDTN) – Cedarville University’s School of Pharmacy was awarded a $25,000 grant to help fight the opioid epidemic.
Dr. Marc Sweeny from the Cedarville University School of Pharmacy sat down with Brooke Moore to discuss how the funds will be used.
Dr. Sweeny said the grant came from the Cardinal Health Foundation’s Generation Rx Best Practices in Pain Medication Use grant program.
The grant will be used to continue to combat the opioid crisis in Dayton through a chronic pain management program with enhanced communication.
Specifically, Cedarville’s School of Pharmacy will work in collaboration with the Rocking Horse Center in Springfield, Ohio to help patients make good medical decisions relating to pain management.
The Dayton region, including Springfield, is widely known for being one of the worst areas in the nation for opioid abuse.
