When it comes to accessing health services, a person’s zip code should never be a deterrent to success, nor should it be a barrier to improved health. Yet for many, that’s a daily reality. In Columbus, the neighborhood where a person lives is a predictor of how long they will live. In some areas of our community, there is a nearly 20 year difference in lifespans.
We are aiming to close this gap.
