“We are  honored to receive this award,” said Chad Jester of Nationwide Foundation, “but there is so much work left to do. When we created the fictional town of Denial, OH, we hoped it would shift the mindset and change perception of parents who don’t believe their children would abuse opioids. While we weren’t thinking about winning awards, it is affirmation that our message is resonating.”
