Forrest County ranks 39 of 82 in 'healthiest'

County health rankings out How does your county stack See where local counties rank in new well-being report

In Leon County, the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) is created to address specific opportunities for improved health that have been identified by the community.

Pitt County historically performs comparatively well in the clinical care components of the rankings - which account for numbers of primary care doctors, dentists, preventable hospital stays and mental health providers - mostly because of the presence of Vidant Medical Center and the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University, Morrow said. Fifteen percent of Hispanic children and 11 percent of black children live in poverty in Carver County, while only 2 percent of white children live in poverty.

Senior advisor at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Dr. Dwayne Proctor says health is directly influenced by where you live and begs questions about disparity. According to the county health rankings, that percentage has dropped from 19 percent in 2008 to 8 percent in 2015. The rankings provide a snapshot, comparing the overall health of almost every county in the nation.

Saratoga County ranks second in the state and the other top performers include: Rockland (1); Westchester (3); Nassau (4); and Putnam (5).

The adult smoking rate was one of the areas that most pleased Morrow, a staunch anti-smoking advocate. Last year, the county ranked below more than half of the state's 62 counties; in 2018, the county is 15 out of 62. "That is way above the rest of the state", said Spegman.

Trump Administration Blames Russia for Cyberattacks Targeting Energy Grid
Russian Federation has shown a willingness to leverage access into energy networks for damaging effect in the past. "It was not clear what impact the attacks had on the USA energy and industrial firms that were targeted".

But the rankings can shed some light on areas that deserve some additional attention, not to mention areas where we see some improvement.

Zip codes can be a good indicator of your health, a new report compares the well-being of almost every county in the United States.

To continue good health status, an additional resource is being released called the "regional community health needs assessment" allowing counties to collaborate to better impact the population's health. Poverty limits opportunity and increases the chance of poor health.

According to the 2018 rankings, the five healthiest counties in North Carolina, starting with most healthy, are Wake County, followed by Orange County, Camden County, Union County, and Mecklenburg County.
