The DPIC served a population of 3.7 million in 20 Ohio counties. With 27 American Association of Poison Control Center certified specialists in poison information and 51 staff certified in national incident management systems, DPIC is one of the largest centers in the country. World events have continued to reinforce and define our community and public health services. The DPIC continued its collaborations with regional medical response systems, various county disaster committees and the Ohio Department of Health’s Disaster Preparedness and Response program, including working with a Health Alert Network to send out faxes to 60 regional hospitals on subjects such as swine H1N1 flu, tsunami-related radiation from Japan, blue green algae in local rivers, the “bath salts” and synthetic marijuana phenomena and prescription drug abuse. The center added special pharmacovigilance and medical communication units interfacing safety surveillance with the drug industry. The center continues to gather and evaluate poison control data that may potentially provide toxicosurveillance on a variety of public health issues such as food poisoning, water quality, substance abuse patterns and terrorism preparedness.
The Prevention Research Unit implements programming to promote healthy drug-free lifestyles. Services involve youth, parents and members of the community. The staff of the Prevention Research Unit includes prevention specialists and other professionals (health educators, pharmacists, healthcare professionals, law enforcement officers) who serve as role models in the community. More than 500,000 individuals in Hamilton County have benefited from services provided by the Prevention Research Unit. The unit also provides programming to address delinquency prevention and violence prevention among African-American youth. This year the program earned an Exemplary Prevention Award from the Ohio Department of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Services. Other services include the REACH and NOMAD projects. Additionally the Office of National Drug Control Policies has supported a People of Color Wellness Alliance Coalition Grant and a Grassroots Urban Mobilization Benefiting Ohio initiative to respond to health disparities and wellness issues prevalent among African-Americans and other minorities in Hamilton County.
