Donate with Red Cross to help ensure a diverse blood supply | September 9, 2020

COLUMBUS, Ohio (Sept. 9, 2020) – The American Red Cross needs people of all races and ethnicities to give blood to help ensure a blood supply as diverse as the patients who depend on it. For a small percentage of the population, finding someone else with the same blood type can be difficult. While the vast majority of people have types A, B, O or AB blood, some blood types are unique to certain racial and ethnic groups, so a diverse blood supply is important to meeting the medical needs of a diverse patient population.

JobsOhio Update and Economic Impact Memo from JP Nauseef | August 21, 2020

Since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, more than one million workers have been displaced in our state, and 2.1 million more are at risk. In addition, approximately 85% of displaced workers do not have a college degree. While jobs in the technology sector will continue to drive opportunity for Ohio workers, the state now faces the challenge of needing to quickly upskill displaced or vulnerable workers for new jobs. We are committed to doing everything in our ability to get these displaced Ohioans back to work!
