It's no secret that Vermonters are proud to live a healthy active lifestyle and now our hard work has been recognized!
2012 Marked Vermont's fourth consecutive year at the top of Americas Health Rankings Charts! Over the past decade our states ranking has steadily risen to the top making us our nations leading example of healthy living. We are lucky to live in a state with an abundance of opportunities for physical recreation all year. Many Vermonters revel in the beauty and adventure awaiting in our own backyard--and the results are apparent in our overall health and well being.
Not only are Vermonters physically fit, but we are also mentally strong. Our high level of education, especially our high school graduation rate, has helped set us apart from the national average. We are also lucky to boast a low rate of infectious disease, high public health funding, a low rate of uninsured citizens and plenty of medical professionals per capita. These benefits combined with our exceptionally low crime rate mean Vermont is not only a safe place to live, but a happy and healthy one as well.
