The goal was to end the game with money left in their monthly budget. Most students did well with having at least a little bit of money left over, but many students were surprised at the cost of living and how hard it was to stretch their income out for a month.

Bair is a 2023 Health Care Hero in the Manager category.
The Federally Qualified Health Center operates in Bellefontaine, Indian Lake, Urbana and West Liberty. The group provides primary care, integrated behavioral health care, wellness care, chronic care management, medication assisted treatment for substance abuse, pharmacy, nutrition and other services.
"Tara is constantly working to reach more underserved patients through expansion and better serve current patients through thoughtful innovation," says Kelly Borth, chief strategy officer at GREENCREST.
Originally focused on Logan and surrounding counties, CHWP in 2022 expanded to a community health care center in Urbana, Champaign County.
“It was clear that Urbana needed a community health center not only for recovery patients, but to also eliminate barriers to primary care and other health services for all community residents," Bair said.
CHWP improved patient engagement through a two-way text communication system. CHWP is the only Ohio provider with a two-way interactive messaging system where a patient can ask questions and schedule exams.
“Tara is an innovative leader willing to adapt to best serve her community,” Borth said in her nomination of Bair. “She goes above and beyond to reach those who are not getting the health care they need due to financial restraints or geographic accessibility. She meets them where they are.”
Bair also serves as the incoming chair of the Ohio Association of Community Health Centers and chair of its Ohio Primary Care Workforce committee.
