Learning Center classes branching out to Kentucky, Indiana

Jul 26, 2019

For more than 10 years, Interact for Health has hosted classes for nonprofits at its offices in Norwood. Now for the first time, those classes will be offered in communities throughout Greater Cincinnati.

Smaller nonprofits in rural counties often do not have evaluation, marketing or fundraising staff positions. Or because of their small size, their employees must have knowledge of several fields. Those employees may not be able to take time to travel to classes dozens of miles away.  

“Now people who work at nonprofits will be able to learn new skills right in their own communities,” said Rachel McKinney, Senior Director, Conference Center and Education.

This fall two popular classes will be offered in Indiana and Kentucky.

Both will feature the same instructors as the classes taught at Interact for Health’s Norwood offices, McKinney said.

Skills learned in these classes will allow nonprofits to effectively address issues facing rural areas, including the higher use of tobacco products, the opioid epidemic and access to health care.

“Helping partner organizations expand their capabilities in turn helps Interact for Health fulfill its mission to improve the health of all people in our region, whether they live in urban, suburban or rural areas,” said O’dell Moreno Owens, M.D., M.P.H., president and CEO of Interact for Health.
