I-Teams Featured in Columbus Dispatch

This week the Columbus Dispatch published an article featuring county adult protective services interdisciplinary teams (I-Teams).

More than 80 of Ohio’s 88 counties have established I-Teams, said Angela Terez, a spokeswoman for the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. State officials are working with the remaining few to get their teams going.

“Counties have embraced this charge,” Terez said. “Most tell us they’re hopeful the teams will improve local prevention efforts.”
