What is

We Engage 4 Health will offer community programs in three Cincinnati, Ohio neighborhoods—West End, Over the Rhine, and Price Hill—designed to involve citizens of all ages in learning about health science, identifying health challenges in their communities, and participating in community-led research and action.

Comic-style stories told by “neighborhood characters” will be used throughout the project to share information and pose questions. Find out why stories are such a big part of the We Engage project!

We Engage 4 Health programs are designed to foster participation, contribution, and ownership around the RAP concept:

Recognize individual and community health needs, Ask questions and do research to decide what comes next, and Promote new actions to improve health.
