Not long ago, we listed the 10 healthiest counties in Nebraska. The data was based on information gathered by CountyHealthRankings.org, a collaborative program dedicated to improving health in the entire U.S. Now we’re looking at the flip side of that research and listing off the ten least healthy counties of the 78 that were part of the study.
Please note: health information was not available for 15 of the lower-population counties in the state.
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/
The information presented by County Health Rankings is meant to be a helpful motivation toward living healthier lifestyles. Do you live in any of these counties? What is your community doing to encourage resident health? Tell us about it in the comments.
