Media Advisory: Former Buckeye Football Player Harry Miller to Speak at ‘Faces of Resilience’ Event

Miller made national news earlier this year when he announced he was retiring from football for medical reasons. He is a senior at Ohio State majoring in mechanical engineering. His motto is “Dum Spiro Spero – While I breathe, I hope”.

“We come together to inspire hope and celebrate community members who are helping transform behavioral health care for Central Ohio and beyond,” said Dr. K. Luan Phan, president of the Ohio State Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health.

In addition to Miller’s keynote address, Kristina A. Johnson, President of The Ohio State University, will present the 2022 STAR Award to two of the community’s outstanding mental health advocates: Jeff Kaplan and Bob Schottenstein.

Anne Jeffrey Wright and Sally Jeffrey O’Neil will present an award named in honor of their late mother who was a strong advocate for mental health services. Shipyard President and CEO Rick Milenthal will receive the Nancy Jeffrey Award for his leadership in changing the conversation about mental health and addiction in the community.

Rounding out the awards this year is the Human Service Chamber of Franklin County, the first recipient of the Resilience Award for community service.

Funds raised will support the Ohio State Center for Psychiatry and Resilience, which focuses on depression, anxiety, trauma and addiction to prevent suicides and drug overdose deaths, and the STAR program, an initiative that offers support to healthcare providers and first responders who experience significant stress and trauma in the services they provide every day.

The event will take place at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Northwest Lodge Club – Huntington Entrance at Ohio State University Stadium, 411 Woody Hayes Dr., Columbus.

Media representatives should contact Eileen Scahill at Eileen.Scahill@osumc.edu to make arrangements to cover this event.
