Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $100,000)

The proposed project focuses on Montgomery County Ohio’s critical need to address the shortage of forensic pathologists, especially in light of the dramatic increase in the current and projected number of autopsies due in large part to an “opiate crisis” affecting the jurisdiction. MCCO will train a fellow to perform forensic postmortem examinations.
