One Life

What if you could save one life by sharing a documentary?

Chances are, you'd share it.

One Life, a feature-length documentary, explores root causes for Ohio's alarmingly high rates of infant mortality. And, with Ohio's black babies dying at more than twice the rate of its white babies, One Life uncovers some underlying issues that lead to worse birth outcomes for Ohio's black population.

To look at the health of our babies is to look at the health of our community. Be sure to read on and watch One Life here so that you can understand our community's problem with infant death and, in turn, become a part of the solution.

Do You SEE what I SEE?

Healthy Neighborhoods Committee's animated video short seeks to engage residents around social determinants of health.

Health is about more than just healthcare. Not only is our health affected by the treatment we receive in a health clinic or doctor's office; it's also affected by our social, economic, and environmental conditions. We call these conditions social determinants of health.

But discussing social determinants of health can be complex. So our very own Healthy Neighborhoods Committee saw an opportunity to make the concepts surrounding social determinants of health easily digestible through an animated video short. View the short here!
