A retired ophthalmologist, Joshua has seen many cases of air pollution impacting people's vision and eye health. "I am very concerned about the environment and the potential health affects we face.  I have heard Hamilton County is consistently in the top 10 most air polluted counties in the US.  I would like to help change that.  That is obviously a huge task, more than just cleaning power plant emissions and chemical contamination." 

Josh serves on several other boards, including as Vice Chair of the Concert Nova board, and has become more politically active since the 2000 election. He was born in New York City and graduated from Columbia University before medical school in Nebraska and his eventual move to Cincinnati. He enjoys music, Osher Life Long Learning classes and traveling to visit his 5 children and 3 grandchildren.
