California Ranks High in Study of America’s Healthiest Counties
US News & World Report recently released a listing of “America’s 50 Healthiest Counties for Kids 2014-15” and it was good news for California counties. In fact, of the top 50 counties, 13 are from California; even more impressive is that Marin County ranks as No. 1!
We see rankings on everything imaginable so why should we care about this? Because the goal of this study is to spotlight prevention. When you consider there are more than 3,100 counties in the United States, having California counties account for more than a quarter of the top 50 shows that prevention is increasingly becoming a priority.
