Growing Food and Harvesting Hope for Cancer Survivors

When cancer rears its ugly head and strikes close to home, the physical and mental health impacts can be devastating. Enter Dr. Colleen Spees, assistant professor and member of Ohio State’s Comprehensive Cancer Center, who is channeling hope and empowerment to cancer survivors through her community-based cancer research. Six years ago, Dave Claborn, director of development and community relations at Ohio State Marion, came together with his team to develop an idea that would reward good, local students: GoBuck$. GoBuck$ is a scholarship program that provides students attending Marion City Schools tuition vouchers for attendance and academic achievement.

Engagement is:

The collaboration between institutions of higher education and their larger communities (local, regional/state, national, global) for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity.
