20 year life expectancy difference from one part of Cincinnati to another
If you live in Mount Lookout you're likely to live about 20 years longer than those who live in South Fairmount. Those findings come from a Cincinnati Health Department report on life expectancy for Cincinnati's 47 neighborhood groupings which will be formally released later this morning.
The report also shows African American men throughout the city have a life expectancy nearly ten years less than their white male counterparts. The health department says in a release today it wants to find out why there's such a disparity.
It will hold a roundtable discussion on the issue in January working the community councils, city staff, hospitals and civic organizations.
