County Health Director Says Ranking Shows Progress
Every county wants to be the healthiest in Wisconsin. But there can be only one. The latest rankings give that distinction to Ozaukee county. La Crosse? Down the list a ways at number 21. Still not bad, says county health director Doug Mormann. And there is some progress getting made
The county health rankings find La Crosse does very well in areas like teen birth rate, smoking rates and access to health care. Not so well in areas like density of fast food restaurants and access to healthy foods.
