About the Summit

A result of years of collaboration between Ohio University and Universität Leipzig, the Ohio-Leipzig Transatlantic Summit brings together students from across multiple disciplines. The 2018 Summit focused on the opioid epidemic.

On this site, you will find the work of the students from the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism, who spent their trip developing stories that look not only at the policy making process but also at the crisis back home and the growing problems related to opioid use in the Saxony region.
