Academy Foundation Honors Legacy of Dr. O'Dell Owens

The Academy of Medicine was deeply saddened by the November passing of Dr. O’dell Owens, who was a tireless advocate for improving access to and quality of healthcare in Cincinnati.  In addition to the lasting impact Dr. Owens made in healthcare, he was also a champion of education and social equity.

In honor of his service to this community, the Academy Foundation made a $5,000 donation to Cincy Preschool Promise, a local non-profit on which Dr. Owens served as Board Chairman until his passing. Cincy Preschool Promise works to ensure equitable access to high-quality preschools, and better preparedness for future schooling for all children.
