  • The Ohio University Nutrition Treatment Program is accepting clients for Fall 2021. The program consists of three one-on-one nutritional counseling sessions with a senior dietetic student. Sessions are supervised by a registered dietitian and are personalized to meet client nutrition goals. Counseling includes two 3-day food record nutritional analyses, nutritional education and coaching specified by the client. If you are interested in losing weight, controlling your blood sugar better, decreasing your heart disease risk through diet or just improving your overall food habits, please contact Jana Hovland at Counseling services are free of charge and are open to faculty, staff, students, and community members.
  • Scrap Metal Drive + Recycling Day is coming soon! Happening Oct. 2nd, from 9am-1pm, at the Athens County Fairgrounds.  As usual, the Athens-Hocking Solid Waste District and Habitat for Humanity Faith Build Coalition are teaming up to collect your stuff.   Please see the flier attached to this post under "downloads" to see which items can be recycled for free, which ones have fees, and which items will not be accepted. Additionally, we are looking for one or two church volunteers to assist with scrap metal collection.  Please contact Chris Snoddy at if the volunteer can be you!
