The Health Gap
The Health Gap is a community-health grassroots organization with a clear mission: to eliminate racial and ethnic health disparities, and make Cincinnati a healthier place to live. We do this by promoting a culture of health where we live, work, and play. Every day, healthcare professionals face patients who have come to them too late. Years of poor nutrition, low activity levels, and social and economic factors have put them on a path to get sicker more often and die earlier than the rest of our neighbors. Fortunately, many of these situations are preventable. That’s why the Health Gap works so hard to address the cultural influences perpetuating these problems — to start breaking down the staggering roadblocks affecting Cincinnati’s underserved population.
