Voices of the Medical Center
Published September 2003
The University Hospital, UC, UC College of Medicine, and Cincinnati
Children's Hospital Medical Center are sponsoring The Conference on
Closing the Gap November 13-14 at the Northern Kentucky Convention
Center. This conference aims to help eliminate health disparities among
Appalachians, Hispanics and African Americans in Greater Cincinnati.
People belonging to these groups are more likely to have poor health or
die prematurely due to lack of education and medical treatment.
National and local speakers, health care professionals and community
organization members will team up at this conference to examine the
effect of health disparities, and to mobilize the community to
implement strategies for eliminating these disparities. For more
