Health Disparities Position Statement

Health disparities exist in the Greater Cincinnati region. Life expectancy in one ZIP code may be 25 years less than in a neighboring ZIP code. African American, Latino and Appalachian adults in our region report worse health than White adults, and adults who earn less income have worse health than those who earn more. These persistent inequities impact the physical, social and economic health of our entire region.

To achieve our vision of being the healthiest region in the country, Interact for Health values health equity, and supports policies that address health disparities by equipping vulnerable populations with the resources needed to be healthy.
