Neighbor Up members passionate about the health of their neighborhoods came together around the question, “What’s working when it comes to health in the communities of Greater University Circle?”
They started having conversations last year with neighbors, doctors at the Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals, as well as city leaders.
This year they decided to focus on having a positive impact in the areas of infant mortality and lead abatement. Greater University Circle neighborhoods have infant mortality rates among African-American babies that rival those of third world countries. And lead paint in old homes can cause learning disabilities and other issues in children.
