Kewaunee, Door finish in top third in county health rankings

Kewaunee and Door are among the healthiest counties in the state according to the County Health Rankings released on Tuesday. A collaborative effort between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute, the rankings show how location influences how well and how long you live. Kewaunee County took 11th overall in the study, showing improvement specifically in the health behaviors category. Cindy Kinnard from the Kewaunee County Public Health Department says the improvement shows the effort they put into getting people more active.

Ozaukee County took top honors in the health rankings list while Menominee County finished in last. We will cover Door County, which took 20th out of Wisconsin’s 72 counties in the report, later this week.
