The 2015 annual conference brought a wealth of knowledge to consumers and health care providers alike. Attendees felt the content was timely and mapped out a clear course of action to improve health disparities. Some of the session presentations can be downloaded here


The memory of Executive Director Paul Dorn was felt throughout the conference. MACC was delighted to announce the installment of Debbie Nixon-Hughes, former Deputy Director of the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, as the MACC Interim Executive Director.

Dear Friends and Colleagues:


It is with extreme sadness that we share the news of the passing of our Executive Director Paul Dorn on Sunday, August 2.  Paul joined our staff in May of this year but over the course of our history, Paul has been an ardent MACC supporter.  He is a founding Board Member and the founding Chair of the Board of Directors. 


Late last week, Paul prepared an update that you would have received today. In his message he wrote, in part:


Paul Dorn image“Today is my 75th day as the Executive Director. I have gained a wealth of knowledge during my transition back to MACC and I am excited about the future. Thank you for all of your support and dedication, as we would be lost without our community partners. MACC has accomplished some tremendous feats in nearly 13 years with the support of strong leadership at the Executive Level and invaluable governance from the Board of Directors. We have developed health coalitions, produced research-based Needs Assessments for various diverse communities in Ohio, contributed to a number of committees and working groups, developed strategic partnerships and so much more in an effort to eliminate health disparities, expand access to health care and services, and reduce the stigma of mental illness and substance abuse disorders. I am humbled, privileged, and inspired to lead MACC.”


Paul previously served as Vice President of Corporate Compliance at St. Vincent Family Center, was a National Facilitator Trainer / Anti-Bias Educator with the Anti- Defamation League, and was a Pediatric Child, Adolescent and Family Therapist with Nationwide Children’s Hospital. 


The Board of Directors was more than excited to have Paul accept the position and then serve as our Executive Director.  Today we are experiencing shock and grief in equal measure. 




Jill Frost, Vice Chair
