Livingston County among state's 10 healthiest counties

Buncombe County is on track to become the third healthiest community in North Carolina, according to national County Health Rankings (CHR) released by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute earlier this month.

Local Tennessee counties fared much better than Southwest Virginia.

Westchester County was ranked third for both health outcomes and health factors, up from fourth place in both categories a year ago.

According to the 2018 County Health Rankings, Leon County leads all of Florida's 67 counties in terms of newly diagnosed cases of chlamydia.

Elsewhere in the region, Chesterfield County ranked 30th, Henrico County 33rd and Hanover County 16th. "But it doesn't matter how good our clinical care is if our community members can't access it".

The Crater Health District (CHD), which includes the cities of Petersburg and Emporia, has hosted a number of training workshops over the past year on adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), trauma-informed care and resilience within the district. Broome County experiences a high rate of childhood poverty at 24%, while NYS is at 21%. Bournhonesque said the report highlights certain county public health issues that might be hidden behind seemingly positive public health measures.

"I think doing the substantive work to change people's assessments of their own health and their actual health outcomes - their years of life expectancy - that is generational work", Avula said. Other areas of strength include low rates of sexually transmitted infections, teen births and injury deaths.

For the 2018 Rankings, Broome County improved its Length of Life ranking to 52 out of 62 counties. "Leveraging the County Health Rankings data is an important step toward realizing this goal in Florida". "We look forward to using this year's County Health Rankings data to help inform our work".

As expected, Ottawa County remains our healthiest county, coming in at number one for almost the fifth year in a row.

The foundation has four main recommendations: increased early childhood education investment; increase or supplement income for low-income households; expand health insurance coverage and access to health services; and enhance support of community collaborative social initiatives.

Believe it or not, your zip code can be a good indicator of your health.

The County has a 94% graduation rate, our unemployment rate is 3.5%, and we reported 158 violent crimes.
