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 information, call 585-9872, e-mail closingthegap@healthall.com or visit the Web site at www.health-alliance.com/closingthegap.
