Neighborhood Summit 2023

March 11, 2023
Cintas Center, XU


We were pleased to partner with Interact for Health
to present the 2023 Neighborhood Summit: 


“A city is only as healthy as its least healthy neighborhood”

We have seen the reports that have shown that where you live correlates to your health outcomes.  In Cincinnati, whether it is measured by longevity, blood pressure, arthritis, or level of physical activity, we can see the disparity between neighborhoods.  And these disparities directly correlate to poverty levels and racial inequity and access to transportation, jobs, stable housing, healthy foods and other interrelated factors. 

This year’s Summit will discuss what is needed to be healthy neighborhoods with topics such as equity of access to opportunities, economic sustainability, safe and healthy housing; access to affordable food, health care, green spaces, and public transportation; creating community connections and resiliency; and the importance of diversity and inclusion in each neighborhood. 

Some questions to be considered:

  • How do we define a healthy neighborhood?
  • How can we look at this holistically and work on the interrelated factors that contribute to ‘a healthy neighborhood’?
  • What are the barriers to becoming a healthy neighborhood and how do we change that?
  • How do we measure outcomes in a way that shows sustainable change is occurring?
