Children's Health in Appalachian Ohio

"The latest report by the Children’s Defense Fund-Ohio (CDF-Ohio), Ohio’s Appalachian Children at a Crossroads: A Roadmap for Action,” finds some positive change, but overall paints a picture of stark contrast in the well-being of the Appalachian children compared to those in the rest of the state and much of the nation. Many health problems actually have worsened or newly emerged since the first report in 2001, and the percentage of children living in poverty in the region has increased."

The above news comes from a press release from the Children's Defense Fund of Ohio. Be sure to check out their 2-page fact sheet with graphs and stats and a road map for action.
