The Ohio State University is looking for help from Buckeye Nation to save lives and beat “That Team Up North.” The 41st Annual Blood Battle between Ohio State and TTUN runs from Oct. 26 – Nov. 23, with a series of 48 blood drives in the campus area. The Wolverines have won each of the last four competitions.

All donors from the month-long event will receive a free Blood Battle T-shirt and will be entered to win a collection of other prizes.

All blood donated in Columbus benefits patients at the Wexner Medical Center. The blood donation process takes less than an hour to complete and can save up to three lives. For a complete listing of drives and to schedule an appointment, visit Versiti.org/bloodbattle or call 800-485-6594. To expedite the donation process, you can complete the health history questionnaire online during the day of your appointment.

Mike DeWine challenged all of us in state government to think of ways we could help Ohioans navigate the opioid crisis that has affected our state for so long. For us, that meant considering the financial effects of addiction — and providing tools and trainings to help Ohioans and financial advisers talk about addiction and access care.
