The Curricular Approaches to Radical Education (CARE) Project.Do you live in Walnut Hills? Do you care about the health of your community? Do you have an interest in learning more about the African Diaspora (i.e. history, culture, and food)? If you answered yes to all these questions, then we would love to have you as part of Walnut Hills, University of Cincinnati and American Heart Association collaborative Community Advisory Board (CAB). The CAB will help to advise and guide a community health program focused on CVD in the Black/African American community. CAB members will participate in community research training and meet monthly, each session members will be paid $25/hour Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) is one of the leading causes of mortality and morbidity in the United States (U.S.). Non-Hispanic Black/African Americans experience worse overall cardiovascular health in comparison to their non-Hispanic white counterparts. Despite national goals to reduce and/or eliminate racial/ethnic health disparities, the American Heart Association (AHA), reports little change in the CVD racial/ethnic disparity. Our goal is ultimately to reduce health disparities through gaining knowledge about African food traditions which are health promoting, cultivating cultural competence of students and working with residents to develop programs that are tailored to fit their needs. We believe that this area of inquire will provide new insights into the racial health disparities Black/African Americans face.

Walnut Hills, Cincinnati
Neighborhood Overview

Located just 2 miles northeast of downtown Cincinnati, Ohio, Walnut Hills has been known for its cultural, ethnic, religious and socio-economic diversity since its founding in 1804. It was a key part of the Underground Railroad with resident Harriet Beecher Stowe and the Lane Seminary hosting abolitionist debates in the mid-19th century. During the first half of the 20th century, Peebles Corner became known as the second downtown because of its vibrant business district and close proximity to downtown Cincinnati.

Walnut Hills is home to a broad range of historic, cultural and civic assets including the Harriet Beecher Stowe House, and greenspaces like Eden Park, which contains the Cincinnati Art Museum, Krohn Conservatory, Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, and Seasongood Pavilion. The Melrose YMCA and the Bush Recreation Center provide an array of fitness programs and activities for all ages. The Walnut Hills Area Council and the Walnut Hills Business Group offer meaningful opportunities for engagement, and a variety of local businesses, community organizations, social services, schools, faith-based groups, and events round out the neighborhood’s offerings.

Walnut Hills is a warm and welcoming community, and a great place for individuals and families, whether you’re a long-time resident, renting your first apartment, owning a home, or just here for a short visit!

Walnut Hills is blooming this spring, thanks to our wonderful sponsors! The following businesses and organizations have chosen to help beautify the core business district by covering part of the cost for one or more street flower pots. Thank them by shopping local and utilizing their services! And a special thanks to the Parks Department, who is making all of this possible.
