The unique event to highlight community services and forward cultural, educational, and developmental achievements among market sectors

We are extremely honored to be selected to participate in Franklin University’s ‘Day of Discovery,’ as its message dovetails with our mission and the goals we are trying to achieve at Eastway and The Heritage of Hannah Neil.

Franklin University, in partnership with the Columbus Metropolitan Library, will host a unique poster event to celebrate innovation, research, programming, and evaluation for diverse community populations. Eastway Behavioral Healthcare, one of the largest and most comprehensive not-for-profit organizations serving Ohio residents struggling with mental illness, has been selected as a presenter for this exclusive event. Lesley Puett, Assistant Director of Eastway’s newly renovated and recently opened Heritage of Hannah Neil facility, will be on hand to discuss the center’s mission, goals and services.

The Learning Showcase – a Day of Discovery – will feature companies from a diverse group of industries that include nonprofit, government, education, and corporate organizations. It will be held October 7th from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. in the library's newly renovated space.

“We are extremely honored to be selected to participate in Franklin University’s ‘Day of Discovery,’ as its message dovetails with our mission and the goals we are trying to achieve at Eastway and The Heritage of Hannah Neil,” said John Strahm, Eastway’s CEO. “We welcome the opportunity to explore the importance of innovation and collaboration with an audience that includes community leaders, organizations, and the general public who share our interest in special-needs groups. We applaud Franklin University and the Columbus Metropolitan Museum for offering a forum to showcase the importance of these issues.”

Puett will make the poster presentation, developed by Tom Standish, the Executive Director of The Heritage of Hannah Neil. The session will provide a brief overview of trauma and the methods of introducing effective treatment protocols into a residential setting. The major focus will be on the impact of poverty as a multi-faceted source of trauma, and how to combat it while children are in residential care and after they are discharged back into the community. The presentation includes interviews with children and families who have experienced poverty, and the resulting toll it has taken on their lives. It offers ideas to establish and cultivate meaningful partnerships within the community, and promotes an open dialogue among market sectors to identify the consequences of poverty, and the importance of collaboration to further educational and developmental achievements.
