Area Health Education Center (formally HEALTH-UC)

Clermont County Safe Communities

University of Cincinnati Area Health Education Center  (AHEC) has been awarded $42,000 from the Ohio Department of Public Safety’s (ODPS) Ohio Traffic Safety Office (OTSO) federal fiscal year 2019.  UC AHEC will use these funds to reestablish the Clermont County Safe Communities program. 

UC-AHEC has identified that lack of seat belt usage and increased use of electronic devices while driving  are impacting the safety and welfare of the citizens of Clermont County. To save lives and improve the quality of life for our citizens, UC-AHEC will also use the grant funds to promote education and encourage the general public to put down electronic devices while driving, buckle up, be observant of motorcyclists and drive sober.  There will be a special interest focus with high school and college students on the hazards of impaired and distracted driving.  The grant is funded by U.S. DOT/NHTSA and ODPS.
