Why live in Gallatin County? Why not? Now for the second year in a row Gallatin county has been awarded as the healthiest county in the state of Montana.
The study conducted by the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institutes ranks the overall health of just about every county in the nation. Factors such as long life and activity play a roll in determining the results.
The report showed that a lower percentage of Gallatin County residents reported smoking than those statewide; the obesity and the teen birth rates are also lower than the state level.
Although Montana in general has had some drawbacks to it's health and well-being of residents in the past this is certainly a boost for those living in the Gallatin county area. Most officials know the work is far from over but that something is at least making an impact on those living in the area.
There are family planning clinics and those like the Bridger Clinic that serves about 10,000 people per year in providing health care and educational opportunities. Health is always on the minds of those in the local health-care administration and although this is a boost for morale they understand that it's the continuing efforts of an entire community working together to promote a higher health standard. From starting in schools and education to upper administrations in government the Montana board of Health is always striving to better the lives and health of it's residents.
