HEALTH & WELLNESS

With the possible changes in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and its repeal, there are many citizens expressing concern. The Cincinnati Health Department is also expressing concern because since the ACA has been in force, the number of patients the Health Department has been able to see at our health centers has increased. That is important for the Health Department because that means that more people are paying attention to their health and more people are feeling like they have a place to go that will respond to their health needs. Our mission is to make the citizens of Cincinnati healthy and the ACA is helping us do that. Therefore, if you have some concerns about what may be happening in the nation’s capital as it relates to Healthcare, remember that you have a voice and you can always express it. One method to contact our elected officials is to access the following link:
