Youth Prevention Education classes will begin for sixth graders in mid-January. HRC Prevention currently provides the Too Good for Drugs program to fifth and sixth graders at the majority of schools in Clark and Edgar counties.

HRC Prevention works alongside the CAMA Coalition to implement youth-related substance abuse prevention. CAMA Teen chapters are currently active in six local schools. CAMA is launching a communication campaign to prevent underage drinking by reaching out to parents. The program, called “Talk.

Gentiva Hospice recently announced that Dr. Craig Johnson of Providence Medical Group/Brazil Family Medicine has joined its medical director team working alongside physicians, Dr. Antwan Mardini and Dr. Divyesh Purohit.

The addition of Johnson gives Gentiva patients maximum physician accessibility during the most critical times during their hospice service as well as during daily hospice operations.

He has a longtime passion for hospice and palliative medicine and joins Gentiva with knowledge and compassion for patients facing life limiting illnesses. He will also serve to educate the Gentiva staff and the community regarding hospice and palliative care.

Johnson received his Doctor of Osteopathy from Michigan State University in 1998 and did his residency in Family Practice at Union Hospital, where he served as chief resident from 2000-2001.

He serves as the medical director of St. Vincent Clay Hospital in Brazil and attends to patients in both of the long-term care facilities in Clay County.

“We couldn’t be more excited with the addition of Dr. Johnson to the Gentiva family. He brings so much to the table, both in his willingness to educate his patients and families on the choices available to them through illness and his genuine commitment to his community professionally and personally,” said Executive Director of Gentiva Hospice Tammy Keenan.

Johnson serves on several boards and committees within the St. Vincent Network, and volunteers as a Medical School Proctor for IU Medical School/Terre Haute. He is also an active member of his community by serving as a physician volunteer for the Northview High School football team.

He is a small group leader and the emergency response physician for his church.

The Terre Haute branch of Gentiva Hospice serves the counties of Vigo, Clay, Fountain, Greene, Owen, Parke, Putnam, Sullivan, Vermillion and Warren.

The Gentiva family of companies has been a national leader in hospice and home healthcare for over 40 years, delivering homecare to 80,000 patients a day — one patient at a time.
