Dayton Conference On Pediatric Trauma Draws Hundreds

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine speaks at a conference in Dayton on Pediatric Trauma

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine and Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley headlined a pediatric trauma and mental health summit called “Building Resiliency,” in Dayton on Sept. 26 that drew more than 800 attendees from across the state. OhioGuidestone’s own Holli Ritzenthaler presented on our work with UH and NEON at the summit, as mentioned in the excerpt below:

“During the morning session — one of the panelists was from Northeast Ohio, from a mental health agency called OhioGuidestone. Holli Ritzenthaler, [OhioGuidestone] assistant vice president, talked about a new program that they will be kicking off with University Hospitals’ Rainbow Babies [and Children’s] Hospital next month. All children, up to 5 years old, will be screened for trauma when they go for their well-child visit at the hospital. OhioGuidestone counselors have been overseeing a similar program at Northeast Ohio Neighborhood Health Services Inc., (NEON) clinics for the past two years, she said.”
