Ohio State is fighting the battle against cancer in just about every corner of the campus. That was apparent after Wednesday’s story meeting where campus communicators shared just some of the ways that students, faculty and researchers are advancing the fight. To take a look at some of the ideas shared, you can review the story-meeting notes here: May 28 meeting notes.
The ideas we gathered are a great starting point for some of the coverage plans centered around the opening of the new James Cancer Hospital later this year. We will continue to build ideas from this base and welcome any new stories that detail the ways your college or unit is helping to advance the cancer fight. In addition to the discussion of cancer efforts, two stories are coming up soon that will merit some attention: Ohio State’s Big Idea Finals is scheduled for 8 a.m. on Friday, and the three-year Eco-Car competition will come to a close with finals beginning this Sunday.
The next meeting will be on June 26 here at Gateway. I would invite any attendees to bring some of their success stories with them to that and any future gatherings. We’d like the meetings to be a place where our campus storytellers can share accomplishments and best practices, so if you’ve recently completed a project you are proud of, we’d love to hear about it.
