The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center Arthur G. James and Richard J. Solove Research Institute in Columbus, Ohio.

In Ohio, 400,000 kids suffer from asthma alone and a revised state bill will allow Ohio schools and camps to keep a supply of asthma inhalers for non-prescribed patients in case of emergencies. The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center launched a free online course called “Introduction to the Science of Cancer," a course that helps participants better understand what cancer is. Over the past 35 years, obesity rates have more than doubled, and Ohio ranks as the 8th most obese state in the U.S.
