December 10, 2009 - Community
Health Center – 702 East Market – Akron, OH
The December 2009 Turning Outward remote broadcast
focused on coping with depression and substance abuse during
the Holiday season. We chose the Community Health Center –
the premier provider of substance abuse treatment in Summit
The holiday season for most people
is a fun time of the year filled with parties, celebrations,
and social gatherings with family and friends. But for many
people, it is a time filled with sadness, self-reflection,
loneliness, and anxiety. To cope with these pressures, many
abuse drugs, and alcohol which can evidentially lead to depression.
Summit general manager, Tommy Bruno, conducted interviews
- Chrissy Gashash, Marketing Manager
- Kathy Perge, Director of Intake/Diagnostic Department
- Frankie Betancourt, Community Health Center

July 22, 2009 - Junior
Achievement of North Central Ohio
Junior Achievement of North Central Ohio – And based
on our Community Needs Assessment Junior Achievement of North
Central Ohio touched on three significant components in-need:
- Financial Literacy
- Workforce Readiness
Successfully raising awareness of the JA programs and their
mission was an obvious first step in Turning Outward. JA programs
help prepare young people for the real world by showing them
how to generate wealth and effectively manage it, how to create
jobs which make their communities more robust, and how to
apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace. Students
put these lessons into action, and learn the value of contributing
to their communities.
