We’ve shown you where the healthiest people in Michigan live. But now it’s time for the flip side and reveal the unhealthiest places. The University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute for its study, County Health Rankings and Roadmaps gathered a number of data points to reach its conclusions about the health of residents in counties all over the country, including Michigan. Using that information, we’re providing you with this hopefully useful tool.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Wow, some of these details are quite revealing. Who knew so many of these factors could lead to poor health among an entire population. Tell us though, what’s missing in this data? Can you live a healthy life if you live in one of these counties?
