If you care about the integrity of our judicial system, make sure you register to vote by October 9, and call your Senator this week about the Supreme Court nominee.
9/26/2018 – Beginning in October, clients of Equitas Health’s Safe Point program will be limited to 10 clean syringes per program day — 80 or 90 per month— unless they turn in dirty syringes. Clients exchanging needles at the program’s Short North location will receive one clean syringe for every needle they turn in, up to a maximum of 280 per month. The change comes as part of a concession made by Equitas Health to receive funding from the city of Columbus and Franklin County.
