New York State gets healthier

In a fascinating and thorough state-by-state study of public health, conducted by UnitedHealth Foundation (a charitable foundation of The Business Council member UnitedHealth) and the American Public Health Association, New York State climbs in the rankings to #13.  According to the report, New York adults are becoming a bit more physically active and our state’s obesity figures have slightly decreased.

While there is certainly room for improvement, New York’s climbing in the ranks represents a move in the right direction for all New Yorkers, especially employers who are always looking to help better the health of their employees. The study can be found here.
