Healthy by Design Art Contest & Exposition

About the theme:
Greater Cincinnati is Healthy by Design where everyone is connected to quality, affordable healthcare.
- Addressing unmet health-related social needs such as housing, transportation, utilities, hunger, and interpersonal violence, means better health outcomes for our community.
- Treating the whole person means designing a healthcare system where value is based on the quality of care; simply stated, doctors are paid to keep patients healthy.
- Prioritizing health and wellness initiatives to meet the needs of disparate populations means empowering and educating our neighborhoods, our employers, our educational institutions around healthy living best practices and opportunities.
Greater Cincinnati will be a region healthy by design; a place where the health outcomes of our people reflect the exceptional healthcare of our region now, and for generations to come.
