In my last blog, I wrote about what we call, “up-stream factors” in health. Those are health behaviors that could help you live a longer and healthier life. Those behaviors were: not smoking, eating a healthy diet, getting regular exercise, and limiting alcohol consumption. While these behaviors are helpful in keeping you healthy, it is also important to have access to regular healthcare for regular check-ups or when you are sick. So what does healthcare access look like for adults in Greater Cincinnati (results based on the 2013 Greater Cincinnati Health Status Survey)?
