Mike Templeton continues his urban Appalachian neighborhoods series in this week's blog post dedicated to East Price Hill. Appalachian presence in EPH began in the 1970s when Irish and German Catholic families moved out of the city and Appalachian migrants moved up the hill from Lower Price Hill and Over-the-Rhine. Read more about how urban Appalachians have influenced this multicultural neighborhood throughout the years below.

Hamilton County Health Department Survey

UACC is partnering with the Hamilton County Department of Health to do outreach regarding the use of tobacco and similar products. HCDH has asked us to circulate a survey to obtain feedback from our subscribers that might inform our efforts.  Please take a few minutes to fill out the survey. If you have comments about the survey itself please send them to Mike Maloney at meamon@

The health department is passionate about making sure they understand what the communities they serve need/ want when it comes to tobacco prevention and cessation programs. The only way they can know how to best serve their communities is by getting feedback from you! They would like to invite you to fill out a survey about tobacco use as well as your opinions on some of the tobacco-related programs that have already been put in place and future possibilities. The survey was developed by the Ohio State Department of Health, but they will be using all data gathered here at the local level to work with communities for tobacco prevention and cessation.

After completing the survey you will be able to enter to win a Kroger Gift Card! To access the survey you can follow this link (or type it into a web browser: or you can scan the QR code in the image below from your smartphone.
